Saving the Stories I is an interactive program that teaches participants a method for recording family stories. It begins with a lecture/slideshow that explains the importance and urgency of recording family stories. The second and third parts demonstrate a method using "mind maps" to help get facts and emotions of a situation on paper and how to reorder them into an effective story. In the fourth and fifth steps participants are asked to work individually and in small groups to record a story.
