The Great Story Reading Project is a collection of story suggestions and simplified texts designed specifically for Story Listening. Teachers who are new to Story Listening can find stories to get started with Story Listening.
At the heart of our mission is connecting teachers and leading educators and scholars in our field. We are committed to offering professional development that promotes the use of stories and pleasure reading for language acquisition. Contact us to create trainings or materials for teachers in your community interested in stories and pleasure reading.
Volunteers working with refugees or in vulnerable communities often struggle to find the time and resources for research-backed approaches. Educators working on a volunteer basis or teaching under-served populations or refugees are invited to apply for free online training in the Story Listening approach. Training is geared toward beginning teachers and available in multiple European languages.
The Stories First Foundation partners with the Rocky Mountain Welcome Center to provide training and support for volunteer teachers serving Newcomers to the US, especially refugees. Learn more about how you can support their mission here.
