Teaching Tip: Guiding Students into Self-Publishing
High school students can be helped to become published authors through self-publishing projects. Self-publishing platforms, such as Amazon's Create Space and Kindle Direct Publishing, allow virtually anyone to publish a book for free or minimal costs. Guiding students in this process provides them with real-world skills. Students would have to be engaged in editing, proofreading, formatting, and marketing on their own. Any proceeds from a book published by a student can be used as a class fundraiser.
