The Student Press Initiative is a wonderful-looking program which trains teachers on best practices for getting students to publish their work publicly. This looks like a perfect opportunity for any teachers that work with students on writing. How does publishing to the public change the way we write? Can it make it more real for students? Can they connect to a wider audience than their teacher? I would say yes to all of these points.
Please share this program with your teachers. It will take place on July 12-15 in New York City, at Teachers College, Columbia University (my alma mater!).
