Thank a Teacher on Nov. 25

StoryCorps, a nonprofit oral history project, is asking people to give thanks to their favorite teacher on Nov. 25. David Isay, founder of StoryCorps, is encouraging people to record a tribute to a teacher and upload it to YouTube, post a memory about a teacher on Facebook with the tag @StoryCorps, "friend" a teacher on Facebook, or tweet a message using #thankateacher. There's also the option to track down a teacher and record an interview with him or her, either at home or at a StoryCorps recording facility. The project is part of the yearlong National Teachers Initiative.

Education Week recently entered into content-sharing partnership with StoryCorps, you'll be hearing more from them on our site soon.
