Two Great Tastes that Taste Great Together

One of my favorite commercials growing up (odd - I know) was the one for Reese's Peanut Butter Cups with Robby Benson and Ralph Malph:

I am a huge fan of peanut butter and chocolate and can't think of a better pairing until I got this: the presidential elections and Google Docs!!!

Google and the National Writing Project have teamed up to create Letters to the Next President: Writing Our Future—an online writing and publishing project that invites young people to write about the issues and concerns they want the next president to address.

With Google Docs, a free online writing tool, teachers guide students through the process of writing a persuasive letter or essay to the presidential candidates and publish their work on the Letters to the Next President: Writing Our Future website.

You can get more information on the project here As a social studies lovin'-writing-technology geek this project is a dream come true!! Please share it far and wide!!

Oh! And remember - there is no right way to eat a Reese's cup!
