As part of the history curriculum at St. John's Episcopal School in Dallas, seventh grade students produce a 5-minute oral history documentary film as an art and film integration.  Over the course of a year, students learn about oral histories as primary sources, complete a pre-interview questionnaire and conduct preliminary research in order to create thoughtful interview questions. Students are coached on how to set up and film the actual interview.  Students conduct further research on their topic and develop a story board, image bank and documentary narrative.  Students learn how to edit their film to produce a polished product that will serve as a family memento for generations. This project has not only changed the lives of our students but has been a gift to their families and to our school. Students complete the journey to no longer see the world around them in one perspective but rather as individuals who are shaped by the experiences around them.  As the personal stories of individual perspectives are interwoven into the collective history of the community, students learn from each other about the common and uncommon experiences that have shaped themselves and their peers.
