This book provides teacher-tested tips on organizing, teaching journalism skills, layout, and publication for school newspaper advisors for grades 5-8. The book contains a variety of reproducibles and a handy glossary to help motivate real-life writing experiences. It also has computer clip art on a disc. The book notes that publishing a newspaper fulfills many of the needs of a good writing program and offers other benefits, among those: student and faculty readership provides a real audience on an ongoing basis; deadlines hold students responsible and accountable; editing and rewriting (process-writing skills) are important parts of newspaper work; and in school newspapers, students have a voice--responsible articles and editorials can impact their lives in school. The book offers sections on organizing the classroom, the students, and the newspaper, as well as many useful blank forms. The book also gives suggestions for layout and design, photography, generating--and funding--the newspaper, and a budget worksheet. A resource section gives a list of five organizations, three books, six software programs, and three companies that produce specially designed paper. (CR)

LITERACY FOR CHILDREN IN AN INFORMATION AGE was developed in response to the urgent need for a literacy methods book that is relevant in today's information-driven society. Cowen and Cohen present a modern, useful text that defines literacy using technology and meets the changing needs of K-12 instructors, providing practical tips for integrating technology into literacy instruction. As technology has had a profound impact on the nature of K-12 teaching-especially the teaching of reading and writing-some scholars believe that today's digital technologies have changed the meaning of literacy. Similarly, nearly every state has included technology-related competencies in their standards at nearly every grade level. With this in mind, LITERACY FOR CHILDREN IN AN INFORMATION AGE also includes examples of best practices, software packages, and websites.

Combining young people’s fascination with the Internet with teaching about racism and anti-racism was the inspiration behind the Eurokid project (and this book). The outcome was a joint Spanish, Swedish and British project aimed at developing good anti-racist practice and curricula via the Internet, hence addressing the shortage of authoritative, well-researched resources and teachers’ anxiety and insecurity about tackling the issue. The outcome was a small overall linking site (www.eurokid.org) connected to two new websites (www.spanishkid.org / www.diversidadjuvenil.org and www.swedkid.nu) plus a revised version of the original British website (www.britkid.org). The aim was to make the websites attractive and easy to use, credible and trustworthy, challenging and enabling yet not over-directive and ‘preaching’, and appropriate for use with school computers.
