An oral history archive is meant to be seen and heard; watched and listened to; sifted through and engaged with. TAVP's oral history archive of the death penalty is a unique resource for educators around Texas as well as the rest of the world. How can we ensure that these invaluable voices circulate in educational spaces, and once they are there, how are they best incorporated into curricula and lesson plans? Over the past 5 years, TAVP materials have been integrated into a range of courses, and as we develop digital tools and build partnerships, our reach is extending. To celebrate the launch of Amplify Austin 2014, TAVP will host a reception and panel to celebrate TAVP in the classroom today and imagine TAVP in the classroom tomorrow. Amplify archives!
