The Publishing Center: How To Create a Successful Publishing Center in Your School, Church, or Community Group.
Saloff, Jamie L.
This book offers information and step-by-step instructions on establishing a publishing center in schools, churches, or community groups and includes reproducible forms. The book gives ideas for such a center, a joint effort between volunteers, students, and teachers, that lets children publish their stories in a professional looking manner. The book shows how teachers can integrate their classroom projects with the publishing center to support and enhance other aspects of their classroom curriculum, with work in the center solidifying lessons already learned in the classroom. Among topics covered in the book are: (1) how to manage the costs involved with a publishing center; (2) how to solicit and retain parent volunteers; (3) how a school publishing center fits into classroom goals; (4) book assembly ideas and instructions; and (5) illustration options.
