Student Publishing: Key to Developing Writing (and other) Literacy Skills
A pillar of Writing instruction is the Writing Process, whose 5 phases include: 1) Pre-writing (research, outlining, story boarding, etc.) 2) Draft: initial composition 3) Revision (review and modification) 4) Editing (proofreading for clarity, conventions, style, etc.) and 5) PUBLISHING (design, production in hard copy or digital, and distribution of final version).
The Resource Kit for ePublishing uses the PUBLISHING phase as an entry point to engage and guide students in writing and publishing their own ePublications.
