Dr. Melinda Wagner speaks about Roots with Wings, an ongoing, collaborative oral history project where Sociology majors teach and mentor students at Floyd County High School. The students take SOCY 493 Practicum in Sociology, which counts for their internship/experience major requirement. The Sociology majors teach workshops in qualitative research methods and mentor the high school students who do oral history interviews with Floyd County elders.
