A class newsletter is a great way to get pupils involved in the classroom blog. You can ask pupils, individually or in small groups, to write a class newsletter. This newsletter may be weekly, fortnightly or monthly and can include many aspects of what has/is taking place in the classroom at that time. This gives the pupils a chance to write in a different manner than they ordinarily can in the Design and Communication Graphics classroom and will allow them to be even more creative than they can be by drawing and designing.
This newsletter can be as long or short as you wish and can either be written straight into a blog post or could again be uploaded to scribd.com and embedded into a blog post.
Adding the tag "Newsletter" will mean that you can record every newsletter the pupils have published and makes them easy to find.
