Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

Roll the Presses!


Transform your learning environment into a newsroom with the Printing Press, an interactive resource from ReadWriteThink designed to assist teachers and students with creating and publishing ideas in a variety of formats—newspapers, brochures and/or flyers.  How cool is that?

This handy tool allows for multiple pages as appropriate while text added to the templates can be modified using a simple toolbar so users can customize features such as font size and color. Documentation for the Printing Press includes folding and printing instructions as well as an extensive “How To” guide that accompanies each template.  A basic planning sheet is also available to help students gather ideas before working at the computer.

Classroom Connection:

Blend technology and literacy across the K-12 curriculum by integrating the Printing Press in your classroom.  It’s true!  Regardless of age, level or discipline, this Web 2.0 tool can be incorporated to provide students with an authentic audience in which to share their writing.

That’s correct!  The Printing Press is an excellent choice for creating a variety of classroom projects and/or culminating activities for any topic:  Class newspapers based on learning experiences or field trips…  Picture, vocabulary and informational booklets of all sorts…  Brochures explaining units of study…  Flyers announcing school and/or classroom events…  And much more!

For additional lesson plans and ideas pertaining to a specific grade level, be sure to check out the Printing Press Classroom Resource Guide.
