App to Facilitate an Intergenerational Project Over Thanksgiving

The Great Thanksgiving Listen is a national project that empowers young people to create an oral history of contemporary United States by recording an interview with an elder using the free StoryCorps app for iOS and Android devices. The interviews will become part of the StoryCorps archive in the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress where they will serve as an invaluable resource for future historians. To date, thousands of high schools from all 50 states have participated and preserved more than 100,000 interviews, providing families with a priceless piece of personal history. The Great Thanksgiving Listen is a free technology-based assignment originally developed for high school students studying American history, social studies, English, language arts, journalism, drama, ESL, media, and technology. Teachers and administrators can learn more and sign up on the project’s website to receive updates, special curriculum, and the free 2019 digital Teacher Toolkit. Costs: Free
