StoryCorps is an oral history project of interviews about everyday Americans who have a story to tell. The Listening Page on the website features short, authentic audio recordings and transcripts from the interviews. You can access these excerpts for free, and use them with your students for listening practice. StoryCorps has done several story themes, such as the September 11th initiative and the history of Latinos living in America. You can assign a listening excerpt to your students for homework, and use Teflnet’s Worksheet Generator to create your own materials to go with the audio. Check out the Great Questions page for questions that your students can ask each other when conducting interviews in the classroom.
