StoryCorps is launching an ambitious program over Thanksgiving. To record interviews between students and their grandparent or another elder using the StoryCorps app. The goal is to “record as many interviews over that one weekend than we’ve recorded over the last 12 years combined.”
Check out the StoryCorps website to learn more about the Great Thanksgiving Listen, or you can view the teacher toolkit which has a lesson planning guide, follow-up activities, and questions that students can ask their elders.
