        Using Oral History to Understand Segregation

        "A Place Out of Time: The Bordentown School" provides teachers with a touchstone to convey important concepts in American history to high schoolers. In this lesson, students compare ideas and information from various sources to understand how oral histories contribute to our understanding of segregation. Students then conduct their own interviews to further their own understanding of individual experiences during segregation.
