Subject Area: English - Writing
Objectives: To allow students to be able to publish their writing to be viewed by others, and to allow them to be creative with their writings and how they are published.
Brief Description: The program allows the students to print their writings out in a manner that otherwise isn't possible in the classroom.  The students can add borders, pictures, titles, and authors to the piece that they are printing.  If they desire, they can just print the text document but the addition of the pictures, borders, and so on allow for their creative juices to flow.
Entry Capabilities Required: Must be able to use the keyboard and mouse.

Rating: (1-5)

Strong Points: Fun to use in the class and it will allow the students to maintain control of their writings and to oversee the final production of their work.
Weak Points: Little directions to illustrate how to use the program.  But it is a simple program to use once you have spent a few minutes with it.
