My students need supplies for crafting and making their own informational zines in our War Eagle Writing Studio classes.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Greetings! My students come from diverse countries and backgrounds; this tapestry of different experiences and cultures makes our student body one that is interesting and charismatic. Many of my students also live in challenging economic conditions; nearly 70% of our students live at or below the poverty level.
My students are part of a special pilot program this year designed to give students opportunities to improve their writing skills.
Very few passed the state writing test this past year; our goal is to help them gain confidence as writers and grow their composition skills.
These supplies will help students craft zines, our entry point into informational writing where students can shine as experts on something they know and share with others. Zines are a real-world genre of writing in academic communities as well as everyday sites of literacy practice. We are requesting items like assorted Sharpies, colored paper, glue sticks, and scissors so that students can make their zines on a topic of their choosing by hand in the spirit of original zine-making.
Our published zines will be available for other students to read in our school library media center and give them a real world audience for their writing.
The supplies from this project will help students create zines that are colorful,authentic, and informative.
Your funding of these resources will help them have the tools they need to create a zine they'll be proud to share with other students in our school.
