ReadWriteThink Printing Press

This is a cool tool that helps students create and print brochures, newspapers, flyers, and booklets.

Click on the link for the desired publication. Give the publication a name.
Click roll the presses.
Choose a layout.
A brief tutorial will appear to show students how to create their publication.
Click in the text boxes to add text.
You can add pages if necessary.
Click finish when done.
Select the appropriate printing option.

Two downfalls...
1. Will not allow students to place pictures on the page while online. Pictures have to literally be pasted to the final project.

2. Work would need to be done in one sitting or a page at a time. There doesn't seem to be a way to save the work.
