Various Methods of Publishing Children's Writing. ERIC Research Summary.
Smith, Carl B., Ed.
There are many ways and options available for children to publish their work, other than just writing for their teachers. This research summary discusses the benefits of publishing students' writing and ways that students go public with their writing: the author's chair, publishing individual authors, classbooks, classroom and school newspapers, and Young Author's conferences. It also discusses the role of technology and computers in publishing children's writing. It concludes that whatever the chosen method, teachers can rest assured that when they publish their students' work, they will not only see improvement in their students' writing skills, but also witness the students' sense of satisfaction and heightened self-esteem as they make their writing public. Contains 23 references and links to 3 Internet resources. (RS)
