So I was reading this interesting article, “You’ve Read the Book, Now Take a Look!” all about literary tourism when I happened across a reference to this video. So is Wordsworth rolling in agony or amusement?

In the Classroom: Kid Podcasts on Writing Historical Fiction
My fourth graders have spent the last few months considering historical fiction and preparing to write their own about the Pilgrims. They’ve done a ton of research about these long ago immigrants (including an overnight trip to Plimoth Plantation) and are all diving into their first story drafts. On Friday we taught them how to do podcasts and now you can listen to the ones they did in which they tell you about this project, their characters, their research and more. I’m very proud of them!
