One World Magazine project
Twelve writing activities which are all part of a project to make a magazine called 'One World'.
These writing activities are all part of a project to make a magazine called 'One World'. Each activity makes one page so that at the end of the project students have written all their own pages using the worksheets provided. Activities include an editorial, writing problem letters, designing an advert and writing a feature. There is also a sports page, review page and quizzes.
Each set of writing tasks, however, can also be done as an individual, one-off activity (except for the Editorial and Cover and Contents pages). The tasks are designed as class work for elementary students and are integrated with other skills. They are suitable for both adults and young learners.
All of these materials are prepared by Jackie McAvoy, a former winner of our Lesson Share competition.
