The Great Thanksgiving Listen

  • 26 Nov 2015
  • Online at Facing History

Imagine preserving the voices and stories of an entire generation over a single holiday weekend. That’s our hope, as Facing History and Ourselves partners with StoryCorps for the 2015 Great Thanksgiving Listen. We are working with teachers like you to encourage your students to interview a grandparent or elder over the 2015 Thanksgiving holiday weekend and record their story with the StoryCorps mobile app.

How can you participate? 

  • Download the Teacher's Toolkit that provides you with information on how to incorporate the assignment into your fall activities including lesson plans, follow-up activities, permission slips, suggested interview topics, tech support, and more.
  • Remind your participating students to tag Facing History (@FacingHistory) in their submission. We will be featuring student content on our Facing Today blog and on social media.
  • Help us spread the word! Follow @FacingHistory and @StoryCorps and use the hashtag #TheGreatListen.
P.S. Be sure to read our latest interview with StoryCorps founder David Isay!
