Reviewer Comments:

This resource provides students with directions for interviewing an older person about something that has changed since they were younger. The assignment is clearly written and could be used as is or easily modified to a particular subject area. For example, the assignment could be used as an introduction to the Industrial Revolution by having students focus their interviews on technological changes. It would be valuable to provide students with a sample interview as well as some possible interview to assist them with the assignment.
