I have run across a very simple web site for making attractive newsletters. Letterpop is a free website that provides you with several high quality graphic templates and allows you to fill in the content. It is easy to do and produces an attractive product. You could easily use this to make classroom newsletters or have students create a newsletter about their family or some other topic.
This is what is great about the new world wide web (Web 2.0), it allows you to easily create products. Before we could only read knowledge from the web, now we are able to create and present.
