DescriptionI interviewed Jessie Thompson for my First Year Seminar class at Marshall University. Our FYS class has been focusing on critical thinking and how thoughtfully developed and artfully asked questions can lead to enriching and enlightening stories, particularly oral histories. We have examined sample oral histories related to two timely topics: pandemics and protests. Frank Sesno's book Ask More has served as inspiration, and each one of us has been tasked with creating and using thoughtful questions related to our specific interview themes.
