After 5 weeks of studying research methodology and oral history techniques, these Marshall High School Puente students (and a few more who weren't photographed) had a chance to first practice interviewing each other, and then...
interview elders who have lived most, if not all of their lives in Pasadena. Here are a few students listening to Daniel Castro, Sr. share highlights from the first 90 years of his life.
They connection that they are experiencing through this process is clearly positively impacting Senior and students. History is being kept alive.
I'll be on a panel with them this coming Saturday as we present at the National Association for Chicana and Chicano Studies annual convention.
