The mission of the Story Preservation Initiative is “to positively impact the lives of K-12 students through the sharing of ideas, the transformative power of story, and the development of educational materials that engage the hearts as well as the minds of young people.” SPI produces original, age-appropriate fiction and nonfiction audio stories coupled with related, hands-on, standards-aligned lesson plans and projects to deepen student engagement for meaningful, real-world relevant learning.

This free online resource is a great tool for families, students, and educators. To access the ASL stories, create your free account here.
