Using iBooks Author to Create a Digital Handbook

Before technology became available in my classroom, my students would create a paper handbook at the end of the year sharing what they learned with next year's students.  Now with iBooks Author, they can create a digital version.

  1. Students can work in groups of three or four.
  2. The following pages are required: Cover, Message from the Authors, Table of Contents, Chapters, and About the Authors.
  3. Chapters must include: "Classes," "Skills Learn," "Teachers," Front Office," "Extra-Currcular Activities," and something of their choice.
  4. I tell students to keep the handbook positive.  Balancing honesty with tact and diplomacy is a good skill to learn.
