All children believe that they can write a book. Here, at long last, is a handbook that will enable them to do so - and now they can publish the book too. Taking advantage of revolutionary yet readily available technology, Real ePublishing, Really Publishing! will help you transform your classroom into its very own publishing company. All you need are a computer, word processor, digital camera, color printer, and access to the Internet.
A new genre of publication, webbes (Web Books for Everyone) are simple nonfiction picture books. Matching meaningful text with digital photography, these e-publications are a natural means for celebrating and documenting the activities of any curricular unit. Just as important, they offer students across all grade levels a new, more exciting way to write about their everyday lives. These compositions, in any language - even in two - invite writers from every ethnicity, social class, and language group in a school to see publication as a natural part of literacy learning and its complement to developing content concepts.
Real ePublishing, Really Publishing! offers clear and abundant illustrations to guide you in the step-by-step creation of these multimedia texts. You'll learn everything you need to know about the basics of classroom e-publication and digital photography, creating with your students colorful printed paperback books that can be shared digitally within schools or across the Internet.
