Teacher Resources

In the last few years, hundreds of teachers, parents and students have reached out to us about resources, professional development and bringing The Moth to classrooms across the world. We’ve heard you – and now we’re so excited for what’s coming next! 

This year, we launched resources for classroom teachers, including kid-friendly story playlists and transcripts, lesson plans, advice from Moth educators and classroom teachers, and guidelines for establishing a trusting, supportive space for students (along with suggestions for silly games – these are incredibly important for our practice).
