Publishing Icon Teachers are just beginning to explore the Web as a medium for publishing their students' work. Web publication offers extensions to traditional forms of classroom publishing such as submitting writing to journals and anthologies or making books. The Web offers teachers and students several advantages over these traditional means of publishing. Students and teachers can retain control over the format and content of the works they've created. The process of Web publication may also be quicker and less expensive than traditional publications. But most uniquely, the Web provides an immediate and real audience that has the ability to communicate feedback to young authors.
