Students self-publish books at ASK

June 15th, 2018 - Port Jervis, NY - Mrs. Niosi, Mrs. Bartsch, and Mrs. Menchini’s classes held an Authors’ Party on June 15, 2018. Their publishing project was completed over a couple months. The students started with choosing animals that they were interested in learning more about. They then went on to research that animal over several sessions in school using chrome books. Once they were done with their research, they had to write a report. Next, they had to edit that report before moving on the publishing step. Once they finished writing the final version of the report they created their illustration. Each student featured in the class book had one page of writing and one page of an illustration. Faculty members chose the art for the cover and inside cover. The students did an amazing job and we are so proud of them. The "Authors Party" was to celebrate their hard work and their first officially published piece of writing as authors!
