NEW INTERNET NEWS NETWORK
Introducing the Internet Student News (Publishing) Network. The theory behind ISNN is a transformative pedagogy which allows students to write about real things in the real world for real people. Cummins and Sayers, "Transformative pedagogy uses collaborative critical inquiry to relate curriculum content to students' individual and collective experiences and to analyze broader social issues relevant to their lives."
Whether you're published, a beginner, or just someone who's always dreamt of writing for kids, you've come to the right place. Here you'll find lots of information, exclusive Special Reports, messaging and live chat, the latest children's bestsellers, links to other important sites and much more.
