Happy to announce the publication of our newest Google Lit Trips for Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis. This Lit Trip was developed by Dalena Luis, a graduate student from the College of Education at the University of Central Florida.

 

Bud, Not Buddy is of particular interest as it is one of the English Language Arts Common Core Standards exemplar works for Literary Reading. And, it has won several awards for Literature.

 

Bud, Not Buddy is posted both in the K-5 and the 6-8 sections of the Google Lit Trips website.

20 Excellent Websites That Make Your Children Smarter | Hemant Parikh

20 Excellent Websites That Make Your Children Smarter  | Hemant Parikh | UR FUTURE | Scoop.it

“Work smarter, not harder” is an annoying cliché that works for obvious reasons. In the same respect, it’s crucial for us to make sure we’re learning smarter too, especially when it comes to our kids.

 

Luckily, the Internet exists. And using online resources for learning is considered to be one of the best ways to prepare your kids for college, but picking the right websites that help children learn can be a real challenge.

 

After all, there are countless tools, platforms and websites that are being marketed to parents with the promise of turning your child into the next Sheldon Cooper (though some of us will settle for a functioning adult).

 

So if what you’re looking for includes top-notch websites that will make your kids smart enough to win college scholarships, then consider these awesome resources.

It's a stellar day for Google Lit Trips mentions. Among the rewards of having provided the Google Lit Trips resources over the years has been the joy I've experienced as other educators have taken inspiration to bring the concept to other curricular areas. 

 

Two of my favorites being Carol LaRow's Google Historical Voyages and Events (http://larow2.carollarow.com/Voyages/) and Thomas Petra's Real World Math (http://www.realworldmath.org).

 

I love the idea of taking the concept to the world of musical education!

Using Digital Tools, teachers are able to teach their students musical lessons. According to this article, music history can be taught using this tool. Teaching about past musical composers and grammy award winning artist was very helpful because of the use of Google Lit. Google lit allows students to not only learn about music composers but students get to take a virtual trip with that Composer to see his experience. Technology has improved ways to teach and build minds over the internet.
