Our England Book is Ready for Purchase

May 9, 2013

TAP England Shirt 2A few years ago the Minooka TAP teachers noticed that a lot of our student travelers were lugging around those expensive, heavy travel guide books.  Most of them also had a composition notebook in their backpacks to journal each day about their adventures.  On top of that, we even had a kid who’d printed up Wikipedia articles about every one of the places we were visiting, shoved them in a binder and lugged that thing around the whole trip.

That was when the idea of a student created book was born.  So, for the last four years, the TAP students write a book that combines the best ideas of a text book, a travel guide book, and a journal.  The best part is that it’s almost entirely written by the students who are traveling with us.  There’s a little help from the teachers, because we get so excited that we can’t help but contribute, and this year some of the parents, a few of our past travelers, and even a few younger kids that hope to travel with Minooka TAP in the future got into the game.

Our book becomes an invaluable resource on our trip, as well as one of the coolest  souvenirs ever.  On top of that, this is a real published book – the students that contributed are going to have a pretty awesome line on their college applications in a few years.
