Take Part in the Great Thanksgiving Listen

Oct 25, 2016

Last year over 50,000  folks sat around the Thanksgiving table and captured some family history.  This year encourage your students, friends and family members to do the same.  Leave a "Key" For Future Historians & StudentsRecording with the StoryCorps app is about sitting down with someone you care about, asking them a few important questions about the life they have lived, and then listening. Last year, thousands of you and your students participated in The Great Thanksgiving Listen by recording an interview and uploading it to StoryCorps.me and preserving it in the Library of Congress.

The StoryCorps.me website and the archive at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress are both crucial parts of The Great Thanksgiving Listen. Questions about bringing it to your students: Check out more keyword suggestions on our blog and share your own tips with us on twitter and in the StoryCorps in the Classroom Facebook group.


A webinar for both new and returning teachers to The Great Thanksgiving Listen. Members of the StoryCorps team will be joined by three educators who used the Teacher Toolkit in their classrooms last year. Bring your questions and join us for the live chat and video broadcast.
