GoogleLitTrips - bring your novel to life

Each “Lit Trip” involves mapping the movements of characters over a plot’s timeline onto the real world using GoogleEarth and providing excerpts, pictures, and links at each location. The LitTrip allows students to make connections and develop a context for the story.
(You will need Google Earth installed for these "trips" to work.)
