I need an essay of 6 pages and I want you to imagine a asian American women and interview her by yourself. did not follow insertion and take more time than it suppose to take. I asked for a women that not fumes and the women in the essay was fumes. Step One: Identify your interviewee
Select an interviewee (family member, friend, co-worker, etc.) who will be the subject of
your Oral History Project. This person MUST BE at least 40 years old or older and a
woman of Asian descent. It is a good idea to pick someone who will be open and willing
to share information about her/his past.
Step Two: Personal Oral History
Interview your interviewee about three significant events in their life. Ask him/her if
she/he would be willing to participate in your project. Ask her/him questions you
formulated on the “Interview Question Sheet” and any additional questions you feel
would be good to ask.
Step Three: Oral History Paper (DUE MARCH 13, 2017)
After your have interviewed your interviewee, you must write a paper in the form of a
story that gives your readers insight into that person’s life. The three significant events
should be contextualized in the topics discussed in class (use the notes you have taken in
class and from readings/articles).
Although you are writing a story, your paper should still be structured in an organized
6-8 pages; typed; double-spaced; 12pt font; 1 inch margins.
No extra spaces between paragraphs.
Proofread paper for typos, grammatical errors, and spelling errors. (Neatness
and grammar WILL count).
*For help with writing papers, utilize the Writing Center on campus
Step Four: Visual Presentation
Your visual presentation (poster, video, Keynote/PowerPoint) should include pictures
relevant to your interviewee’s history. You can also include text, words, images or
drawings that relate to their three significant events that make up their personal oral
history. Remember to take great care with her/his pictures, as they may be old and have
great sentimental value. If she/he will not allow them to be glued to your poster, it is a
good idea to make color copies and use these instead. If you’ll be using multimedia
(video, audio, Keynote/PowerPoint), please save it on a USB stick for a more time
efficient presentation. Do not rely on saving it on the internet.
Step Five: Present your oral history
You will be given 5-7 minutes to present your story and poster to the class. Your
classmates will be given the opportunity to ask questions at the end of your presentation.
