Learning to write well is a skill that will help students all through life. This guide uses the newspaper to hone skills in a variety of writing forms. Themed units give students activities to practice writing about heritage, culture, life, challenges, surroundings, beginnings and literature. Other units teach skills for opinion writing, news and expository writing, creative writing and storytelling. To give NIE programs a new way to help students improve at writing, Hollister Kids has developed a special version of this guide in which the activity sheets have been converted to quarter-page ads for use in-paper.
