This Thanksgiving weekend, StoryCorps will work with teachers and high school students across the country to preserve the voices and stories of an entire generation of Americans over a single holiday weekend.
Open to everyone, The Great Thanksgiving Listen is a national assignment to engage people of all ages in the act of listening. The pilot project is specially designed for students ages 13 and over and as part of a social studies, history, civics, government, journalism, or political science class, or as an extracurricular activity. All that is needed to participate is a smartphone and the StoryCorps mobile app. All interviews published to StoryCorps.me through this project will be archived in the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
APS teachers and students can participate by going to the WABE_StoryCorps page where interview tips, a link to the StoryCorps app, and information about the program can be found.
