Topic: Writing Books

10-second review: Students turned their research papers into paperback books. Their compositions became anthologies.

Suggested by: “Reading Skills Through Social Studies Content and Student Involvement. JC Frankel. Journal of Reading (October 1974), 23-26. Publication preceded Journal of Adolescent and Adult Literacy by the International Reading Association (IRA).

Summary: Typed in a word processor with book-fold technology (like Microsoft Publisher). The students’ books filled a book case and other students read them. They were also displayed around the room. Included cover design, publication information, table of contents, foreword or introduction and chapter headings with subheadings throughout the chapters when useful to the reader.

Comment: Pride in publication. Rays.
