I started a magazine called StudentsXpress. This publication is written by students in preK-8th grade in 15 Chicago Public Schools. It is delivered quarterly to these schools, along with every branch of the Chicago Public Library.
Our Mission: While showcasing art and writing from students in Chicago Public Schools, StudentsXpress aims to promote creativity and literacy, encourage alternative expressions, create positive self esteem and open discussions.
I would like to supplement this magazine with a project at a specific school, giving the students the opportunity to write and draw about conflict resolution, or whatever topic they decide.
