I'd vowed not to post over spring break, but I'm obviously letting that vow slip.
curriki.org posted something that caught my attention: GoogleLitTrips. It's a neat little site that uses Google Maps to chronicle the great literary road trips. There's a ton of sample projects on the site based on such works as the Make Way for Ducklings, The Slave Dancer, The Kite Runner, and Buddenbrooks (one of my favories!). It's a great place to get ideas for class projects.
