Classroom Newsletter: "A View of What's Happening in the Classroom through the Eyes of the Children."
A project in a second and third grade classroom resulted in a classroom newsletter designed and written by regular and special education students to provide the school and parents with information regarding activities in their classroom and school. Students were provided with an authentic opportunity to express their ideas and feelings about school and life, using a process approach to writing. Key components in the writing processes students use to write the newsletter are brainstorming, writing the first draft, peer revising, revising and editing conference, and publishing. The project is flexible enough to meet the needs of teachers, whatever the educational level. A two-hour period was sufficient for the second and third graders in the original project. The cost of the project depends on the computer equipment, software, and paper supplies available. (RS)
