Kindle Direct Publishing
Telling students that they are going to write something and turn it in for a grade is a lot different than telling them that they are going to write something, publish it, and share it with thousands of readers from around the world. Just a couple of years ago this would seem impossible, but with the new free service provided by Kindle, this can become the authentic experience we’ve all been looking for. This can be completed as an individual assignment or as a group compilation of a classes best work. Students will be held accountable to audiences outside of their classes and participate in a learning experience that will truly have a lasting impact. We already have students writing daily, so let’s take their words and share them with the world. Give it a try and truly change the purpose of why we write in school.
