.That my summarized instructions please review the actual instructions for this paper below:
Interview an elderly family member or friend about a major historical event, organization, or issue (this may be Civil Rights Movement, Women’s Movement). The event must be related to American History.
Craft a list of questions beforehand to help guide you.
The goal is to ask your interviewee what they know about a past event or issue, where they got that information—personal experience? News outlet? Word of mouth? Family history? What was their experience? Or are they recalling stories passed down through generations?
This can be freeform and organic, but the guiding questions may help you frame out what you want to be sure to ask.

In a 3-4 page paper report on what your narrator discussed. Use the textbook, assigned readings, and class discussions to assess and evaluate the narrative told by the narrator.
