The Willow Creek Newspaper, which is written and produced solely by students, is about to begin another year of production.
Kids, Ink. is a newspaper written by children for children. Members of Kids, Ink. work throughout the year to write articles about Willow Creek happenings. They also create game pages, comic strips, interesting fact bulletins, and develop surveys that are important to Willow Creek students. Throughout the year, members will research topics of interest, cover school events, set-up interviews, and edit and electronically publish newspapers.
Third, fourth and fifth grade students meet on selected dates from 2:45 - 3:30 p.m. September through May. During the year writers will gain newspaper background knowledge, learn how to interview, write articles, edit, and publish their very own electronic newspaper.
In addition to the meetings, Kids, Ink. members will have to make the time commitment to work on their individual articles outside of school. This unscheduled time may include setting up and completing interviews, writing drafts, gaining background information, location or taking pictures, meeting with other newspaper members, and gathering information and research for future articles.
While Kids, Ink. members work very hard, they also have a great time. Nevertheless, Kids, Ink. members will be given the option of ending their participation after the publication of each edition or continuing on through the remainder of the year.
