From my inbox, this from Donna Guthrie, children’s author and video maker. She is currently producing a new series for children titled “Meet Me At The Corner.”
This is a series of virtual field trips and is being distributed over the Internet as video podcasts on her site Meet Me at the Corner http://www.meetmeatthecorner.org .
Some of the clips I saw appeared to be made and hosted by children themselves, on topics from “service dogs” to “how to interview an illustrator in your own area.” They are well made and fun; informative and sure to grab your students’ interest.
The podcasts can also be found at
