Publish Student Writing to Play Bookstore

Many times a teacher may be the only person to read a student’s writing. The student writes it, the teacher grades it, and then that’s the end. However, a student’s motivation to write more, write better, and revise their work can be greatly influenced by the audience that will be reading their work. With Google Documents and the power of the Internet, student’s can write for a much larger audience that includes their peers, their community, and even the world.

To really expand the audience, student writing can be published in the Google Play Bookstore for worldwide access. This could include a compilation of student essays or short stories or poetry. Or the entire class could work on writing a themed book. The Google Play Bookstore allows ebooks to be sold for free, making it very easy for the widest possible audience to have access to the students’ writings.
