Motivating Reading through Classroom Publications.
Ware, Inez M.
The writing and production of classroom publications can become a strong motivating factor in stimulating children to read. Since a wide variety of activities is necessary in compiling a class paper or magazine, all children can be involved. Guidelines should be established and followed concerning titles and themes for the publication, duties of staff members, content, the assignment of writing, proofreading, ads, the scope of the material, format, illustrations, the production process, and distribution. Children's silent and oral reading skills will be strengthened in the process of producing the publication, and they will be eager to read the finished product. (JM)
