Oral History Project Brings Generations Together


Senior Friends Day at FMS

The day before Thanksgiving is a special day for Farragut Middle School 6th grade students as they invite senior friends and grandparents to the school for an oral history project

After being welcomed and entertained in the high school auditorium, the 40 seniors and students dispersed to classrooms where the students conducted oral history interviews of the senior guests. They asked questions such as how schools are different today, what music did they listen to, what did their parents do for work, and what did they plan to do when they grew up (and what they actually did). The guests also brought in mementos and objects to share.
