Have you heard of Studentreasures Publishing? Have you used it? I used it the year before last and was very impressed with the results. I stumbled on the website through a comment on facebook, and when I found out they would ship to Canada, I just had to try it. It was kind of late in the year when I signed up, so it was a bit rushed at the end of the year. We decided to do a poetry book, and each student wrote and illustrated a poem. The good news was, because it was the end of the year, the students already had impressive writing portfolios, so they chose a poem they had already written through the year. We were SO excited when our books came in - a huge box full of our published writing!!! Talk about making the writing process authentic for the students!
