Move Over, Dr. Seuss, Here Come New Jersey's Teen Authors.
Designed for middle or high school students in Marlboro Township, Marlboro, New Jersey, the teen authors program involves students in the writing, editing, illustration and "publication" of children's books. The instructional unit takes 2 to 3 weeks to complete and culminates with an "author's day" where the student authors present their children's books to elementary school students. The actual creative writing activity process addresses several educational objectives, including proper punctuation, using transitional words, correct subject-verb agreement, self and peer editing, and using a variety of sentence structures. (Evaluation results and a list of instructional materials for the unit are included.) (RS)
