Reaching Out to Families with Student-Created Newsletters
Nail, Melissa H.
Kappa Delta Pi Record, v44 n1 p39-41 Fall 2007
By using a simple teacher-made template, students as young as first grade can collaboratively write and publish their own student-created newsletters. Teachers enjoy the time and energy they save with this integrated learning strategy, and the experience that students gain in publishing their own class newsletter seems to strengthen learning communities by empowering students with ownership. Integrating writing across all the content areas and strengthening communications with families are also powerful benefits of this strategy. In this article, the author recounts her experiences with implementing a student-created newsletter project in her own classroom.
