About This Lesson

Who were you when you started school?
Who are you now?
Who helped you get there?

Graduation is going to look a little different this year. As a way to help celebrate the achievements of students everywhere, StoryCorps is encouraging them to record a StoryCorps conversation with one of the people who helped them reach this exciting milestone.

Record their stories

Invite the students in your life to record a StoryCorps story with one of the people who helped them reach this exciting milestone.

Students’ interviews will be archived at the Library of Congress, becoming part of American history. Hundreds of years from now, future generations will listen in.
