Engaging

ClassroomAuthors® addresses the nations need to improve student writing and reading skills. When collaborative publishing is adopted into a classroom's curriculum, students apply more effort to their writing. Recognizing that their work will be published and read by peers and the community, students sense their thoughts can make a difference. Research has shown that "not only does publishing encourage students to write by creating purpose and vision, but it also serves to improve writing skills" (Ensio & Boxeth, 2000).
