What is it?

Back before computers, professionals would create publications for companies. If you couldn't afford a professional, then you used a box of crayons and hope you got your message out. Today we most often have to create our own publication materials. It's not terribly difficult using your computer. You will create publications for home-school communication purposes (parent and family newsletters, 3-fold brochures, etc.) and to use in your classroom and school (posters, fliers, handouts, etc). Your students will also create publications (newspapers, advertisements, etc).

Why do it?

Technology is all about communication. So is desktop publishing!
