Hear our history: an introduction to learning and teaching oral history


Dedicated to promoting new, alternative approaches to the past, the South African History Archive has provided a variety of enrichment tools in this resource to help make oral history research accessible to all learners and educators. Oral history plays an important role in South African history education, providing ordinary South Africans with a platform to talk about their lives. The virtual exhibition is not only dedicated to young historians - it is inspired by their work. The various themes are centred around the work of participants in the South African Department of Education's annual oral history competition for learners and educators.
