    Zine Project
    By Strawberry_K5

    Clip to ScrapBook
    During student-teaching last year, my third grade mentor teacher had her students do a Zine project. (I think that the topic was related to a book she read). Anyhow, the students chose one topic that they were interested in; whatever topic they wanted: baseball, the beach, holidays, etc. They spent time researching the topic and when they were ready to begin their book, they met with the teacher. They would outline the Bare book: table of contents, author page, etc. Each student would write their book in any format they preferred (poetry, ABC).

    By the end of the year, their peers considered them an expert on the topic. They also used their topic during other genre studies. If they were studying poetry, they would write a poem on their Zine topic. Their work was pretty amazing.
