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.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT OUR STORIES
These stories give people the chance to revisit memories of their city and also discover new stories.

Our curriculum is place-based, which makes Our Stories Project perfect for our students.
