Making Curriculum Pop

Bill Chapman has created a twitter stream creating a "day by day" summary of the events at the US
Constitutional Convention of 1787.

This would be a great model for having kids create/write streams on any historical event.

It looks like his postings are done from James Madison's point of view based on "Notes on the Debates in the Federal Convention" housed in the Yale Law Library (thorugh The Avalon Project)
