The Great Thanksgiving Listen is a national education project that empowers high school students to create an oral history of the contemporary United States by interviewing an elder over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend using the free StoryCorps app. With consent of all participants, these treasured recordings will be entered into the StoryCorps archive in the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, where they become an invaluable resource for future historians. The Great Thanksgiving Listen is a project about the sharing of wisdom, gratitude, and respect across generations. The project is free and open to all students age 13 and over.

The Teacher Toolkit includes: 

  • Information on how to use the StoryCorps app
  • Lesson Plan
  • Student Worksheets
  • Great Questions List
  • Sample Permission Slip
  • Follow-up Activities for Students
