“StoryCorps Shorts” Are Excellent Videos

StoryCorps has a variety of different videos, podcasts and transcripts that are great to use in the classroom, and I’ve previously posted about many of them. StoryCorps Shorts are very short video animations they’ve made from some of their podcasts. You can find all of them here. This one was released today: Unfortunately, it requires a little extra work to get the video transcript. You have to go to the StoryCorps site and search (here’s the transcript for this video). But it’s not that big of a deal. Share...

New StoryCorps Video For Black History Month: “Silvia’s Legacy”

I’ve shared many of the great StoryCorps animated videos over the years. They just released a new one this morning. Here’s how they describe it: Ellaraino experienced a common teenage reaction when she learned she’d have to leave Los Angeles to spend the summer in Louisiana with her great-grandmother, Silvia. Less common was Ellaraino’s realization that Silvia had lived through the Civil War, and had a lot to teach her great-granddaughter about the true meaning of freedom.

Video: If You Like Books, You’ll Love This Brand-New StoryCorps Animated Video

I’ve shared many of the great StoryCorps animated videos over the years. They just released a new one this morning.

With his daughter, Jamilah, Ronald remembers literally growing up in a library, creeping down to the stacks in the middle of the night when curiosity gripped him. A story for anyone who’s ever dreamt of having unrestricted access to books. You might also be interested in The Best Fun Videos About Books & Reading. Share...

StoryCorps Unveils Searchable Archive Of 400,000 Interviews

  I’ve posted often about StoryCorps – their great interviews and their wonderful app. Today, they unveiled an archive containing the 400,000 interviews people have done with their app, and it’s searchable by “keyword or location or topic.” It’s pretty amazing. Unfortunately, the interviews don’t have transcripts, but they are still great listening resources. I interviewed my in-laws using the app, though the app didn’t like my iPhone’s mike so I have to upload it separately. The new archive’s debut is good timing since the Great Thanksgiving Listen is taking place where teachers are having students interview family members all across the U.S. and beyond. I’m adding this info to The Best Listening Sites For English Language Learners. Share...
