The Oral History: Theory and Practice course is an History elective available to Juniors and Seniors of 'Iolani School. It is a semester-long course first offered in Fall 2016. A different topic is selected each semester that the course is offered. Excerpt from the 'Iolani School Course Catalogue: "ORAL HISTORY: THEORY AND PRACTICE allows students to take part in the history making process. By interviewing community members who lived through key events of the 20th century, students will document the stories of the everyday people whose voices are often left out of history books. Students will conduct, transcribe, and archive oral history interviews, thereby contributing new primary source material to the historical record. In lieu of a semester exam, students will produce historical multimedia projects based on the interviews conducted. By participating in this course, students will engage in meaningful academic work, while simultaneously contributing a great service to the community at-large."
