The Stories of Us Resources: Feedback + Next Steps
Thank you for taking the time to check out one or both of The Stories of Us (SoU) resources, including our online library of stories for newcomers by newcomers, and our story-writing curriculum. The most impactful aspects of SoU so far have been borne of being responsive to the needs and experiences of newcomers and ESL educators like yourselves, and we would like to ask for your input to shape how we design the next phase of this project.

The following is a brief survey to help us understand your experience of the resources thus far (even if that means you haven’t had a chance to actually use them yet) as well as what additional improvements, resources, and supports would be most helpful for you. If you would prefer to connect via phone or Zoom, we're happy to set up a brief chat to connect. Please reach out to our Program Manager, Mathura Mahendren at to schedule a time to connect.

Insights from the survey and chats will inform a shareback event in Spring 2021, where we will co-design future directions for this program.
