Why join Our Stories?

 

Free teaching resources

Our Stories provides resources to help you run a series of local oral history interviews, where the students are the interviewers! 

Give your students new skills

Design for year 5-8, Our Stories helps your students learn listening and interviewing skills, builds empathy and allows them to experience local history first-hand.

Be part of a wider project

Your classroom will be part of a wider, oral history project. The best stories from each region are edited and mapped to the Our Stories App, where they can be discovered by locals and visitors.
