"A Project of
An Oral History Webquest
Many of the world's oldest and most beloved stories began as oral histories, or one person's verbal recollection about past events. Stories that survived by way of oral tradition are still enjoyed in classrooms today, and many provided the inspiration for more contemporary literature - just think about Greek Mythology's influence on Rick Riordan's "Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief" series!
It's hard to imagine if these stories were never passed down, or how different our world might be without oral histories. We will delve into the art of recording oral histories and design an anthology of these treasured memories and stories from members of our own Milford community, to be shared and retold for generations to come!
