Towles New Tech Podcast Project

89.1 WBOI teamed up with Towles New Tech Middle School to podcast four stories written by seventh graders in Tia McFarthing's Language Arts class.  The students were given a project that looks at Hinduism and Buddhism teachings, with a focus on Jataka tales (which are the tales about how Buddha became enlightened). 

 Students were asked to write a folktale that aligns with the eightfold path and included several literary devices.
