The TV adaptation of Stephen King's Under the Dome debuts tonight. Read The New York Times piece about it here. Even if you're not a horror fan, it is interesting to read how long Mr. King had the idea percolating before publishing this story. For literacy teachers, it is also interesting to note that when interviewing script writers for the series, the producers asked writers what they would do if they were trapped in their own hometown and cut off from the outside world. Sounds like a good writing/critical thinking prompt for older students.
