While we focus on The Great Thanksgiving Listen in the fall, we welcome educators to bring StoryCorps into the classroom all school-year long! Take advantage of the resources below to get some inspiration on how to incorporate StoryCorps into your classroom:
StoryCorps in the Classroom Facebook Group
This is a forum for discussion between educators. If you would like to hear from fellow educators or share your own experiences and tips for using StoryCorps in the classroom, join the Facebook group.
Every month, the team at StoryCorps puts together an email with highlighted stories for the upcoming month. These stories are typically tied to relevant dates that you might be discussing in your classroom, like September 11th or Black History Month. We also share resources like the Great Thanksgiving Listen Teacher Toolkit and other best practices for bringing StoryCorps into your classroom.
Additional Educator Resources
Beyond the Great Thanksgiving Listen, StoryCorps has additional resources, including free lesson plans, for educators. Whether you’re working on a recording project, or want to use StoryCorps content as a learning tool you’ll find some useful tools at storycorps.org/education
