BECAUSE LITERARY READING BRINGS WISDOM TO THE INFORMATION AGE
"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness." — Mark Twain

Google Lit Trips are award winning supplementary reading resources where students become virtual traveling companions traveling right alongside characters in stories the stories they are reading. The internationally recognized Google Lit Trips Project provides resources dedicated to doing just that for stories commonly taught in grades K-12.
Along the way, location panels contain "just in time" resources including relevant media, thought-provoking discussion starters, and links to supplementary information about "real world" references in that portion of the story. Our focus is on creating engaging and relevant literary experiences for students. We like to refer to them as "Virtual Reader Ride-alongs."
