The Ghost of Bobby Dunbar is a story told using archives. What the main characters in this (true) story learn about their own lives comes from looking at the past. The past is documented in letters, pictures, newspaper clippings, and oral histories. That's the kind of stuff that makes up an archive.
For this set of Reader's Notes, I want you to tell me two things: 1) tell me all the different documents that the granddaughter uses to learn things about Bobby Dunbar, the kidnapping, and her family. She talks to actual people, but I'm interested right now in you telling me about all the things that aren't people. Be specific. Don't just say she uses papers. Point to specific moments and documents from the podcast.
Then 2) tell me how searching around in the past affected the present lives of the people in the story. Here, again, try not to talk in a cliche. Try to look seriously as the effects of the past on the people still alive today.
Remember, you have 250-300 words. You can do this. If you are struggling to get to 250 words, there are a lot of ideas for how to get to that number (which is really not a lot) in the Reader's Notes, assignment page.
