StoryCorps Education makes the StoryCorps mission come alive for your classroom, supporting adults and youth in building relationships and creating more compassionate schools, families, and communities. With our lesson plans and resources, young people will:
- Discover the power of their own voice and know that their experiences and stories matter
- Learn about the power and importance of listening
- Gain empathy and understanding for people who are different from themselves
- Find strength in stories of people like themselves who succeeded despite personal challenges and social barriers.
The resources in this course will provide teachers and mentors with powerful tools for engaging and empowering youth in classroom and community settings. Additionally, connect directly with other educators and StoryCorps staff in our StoryCorps in the Classroom Facebook group.
