The Great Thanksgiving Listen: For Individuals

Let’s Get Listening!

Here are some basic resources to get you started. If you want more in-depth materials, we have you covered! Go to our StoryCorps in the Classroom site to download our Toolkit or peruse our Library of Materials.

Our Primary Tools For Recording Your Story

Before starting a new class, students and teachers make sure they have the right notebooks and pencils. The same is true for anyone who wants to be a part of The Great Listen. Pick which tools works best for you; we can support lots of different situations.

 

Get the Printable Placemat

It’s the connections they’ll remember more than the centerpiece or the stuffing. Download and print the official 2021 Great Thanksgiving Listen placemat, in whatever quantity you need, and you’ll have a sampler platter of Great Questions closer than the salt shaker. Use them as ice-breakers around the table, then after the meal find a quiet place and record your interview with the free StoryCorps App.
