How to interview people
One of the most interesting and revealing methods of historical inquiry is personal testimony – learning about history by talking to people who have a connection to an historical figure or theme. Presented by Joe Crowley, this is a guide for primary age children on how to get the best from personal testimony by conducting well-prepared interviews. It gives tips on how to get the best from interviewees and what type of questions to ask.
Could be useful when:
Looking at methods of historical research.
Exploring the value of personal testimony.
Exploring oral history.
Learning how to find out about historical figures or subjects.
Could be used in conjunction with any of the History Hunt series.
