SoundCite: Wait Till Mr Mattson Learns About This!

--Actually, I think SoundCite is pretty cool, too. 

All of my students are working on projects now (E11 students are working on reforming Shawshank State Prison, while AP Lit students and E12 students are creating websites based on their study of Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried). And you all should try to use a SoundCite clip in your projects. Below is an example of a SoundCite I created. 

One of my many favorite poems by the WWI poet Wilfred Owen is "Anthem for Doomed Youth." The poem has been set to music many times, and a group called LiTTLe MACHiNe (they specialize in setting poetry to music) included the poem, along with one by Siegfried Sassoon, in a nice piece you can hear on SoundCloud Listen to the first lines. (Just click on that "play" icon.) Isn't that smooth? Give SoundCite a try in your project. [Also take a look at this post for similar tools you can use with your projects.]
