Education

StoryCorps Education makes the StoryCorps mission come alive, supporting adults and youth in building relationships and creating more compassionate schools, families, and communities. With our lesson plans and resources, young people will:

  • Discover the power of their own voice and know that their experiences and stories matter
  • Learn about the power and importance of listening
  • Gain empathy and understanding for people who are different from themselves
  • Find strength in stories of people like themselves who succeeded despite personal challenges and social barriers.

The resources below will provide teachers and mentors with powerful tools for engaging and empowering youth in classroom and community settings. Additionally, connect directly with other educators and StoryCorps staff in our StoryCorps in the Classroom Facebook group.


Training & Resources for Educators

 

 

Student Voices

Hear from students who have participated in our work about the power of listening and recording a personal story.

 

 

The Great Thanksgiving Listen

The Great Thanksgiving Listen is a national movement that empowers high school students to create an oral history of the contemporary United States by recording an interview with an elder using the StoryCorps App.
Each year, StoryCorps works with educators and students around the country to preserve the voices and stories of an entire generation of Americans over a single holiday weekend. Learn more and join the movement.
