Story Corps was begun to document interviews with loved ones. In the past, this could be done by making an appointment at a Story Corps center at a Story Corps booth. After winning the Ted Prize, the creator of Story Corps created an App that allows interviews to be done anywhere, anytime and be uploaded to the Library of Congress to be stored forever (and retrieved by family in the future).
As extra credit (and a homework pass)- students may interview an elder over the break and upload (with your approval) to be archived.
Below are some links to the creation and purpose of Story Corps and some examples of interviews in the past. Enjoy!
