BECAUSE LITERARY READING BRINGS WISDOM TO THE INFORMATION AGE
"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness." — Mark Twain
A few words from Google Lit Trips founder
I just want to express my sincere appreciation to those who incorporated the Google Lit Trips resources into their heroic distance learning efforts.To those of you who went a step beyond and chose to also find it in their hearts to make donations to support our work on their behalf, thank you so very much.To all please know that as a retired educator myself, supporting your efforts for your kids and students is my passion. Wishing you a happy, healthy, and safe summer. ~Jerome Burg
In times like these we remember John Lewis advising us to "Get in Good Trouble." He did and we are all better off for his tireless work. (image from Google Lit Trip for Elizabeth Partridge's Marching for Freedom)

What is a Google Lit Trip?Lit Trips are downloadable files that mark the journeys of characters from famous literature on the surface of Google Earth. Along the way, placemarks with pop-up windows 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.
