Teachers - Moth Edu Landing Page


Hundreds of teachers have reached out to us looking for ways to bring storytelling into their classrooms and school communities. We’ve heard you – we’ve developed free resources for K-12 teachers and compiled a playlist of student-friendly stories.

Curriculum Resources

Are you a K-12 teacher? Click here to sign up for The Moth’s curriculum resources.
Over the years, we’ve honed our philosophies and practices of helping young people to share stories, build community, and gain confidence. In our curriculum, you’ll find strategies, lesson plans and tools to help you bring true, personal storytelling to your students. This is not a scripted curriculum or unit plan, but rather a collection of best practices and resources from which to draw.

Teacher Guide

Our book, All These Wonders, is a great way to introduce students to Moth stories! We have a Teacher Guide to accompany the book, which you can find here.
