The El Sol Magazine is a variety magazine that captures the range of students’ interests. Our magazine includes different topics, but generally consists of news, special features, and seasonal features. Students use the magazine to write reports, exploratory articles, and explanatory articles. Thus, they cover topics from reporting on school events, to figuring out why we get hiccups, or suggesting the best ways to save energy at home. In the process of composing the magazine, students take on inquiry-based projects, gain rhetorical awareness, learn about design, and strengthen their digital literacy. Students also have opportunities to create zines (mini magazines) and their own personal magazines that they create in groups, based on their specific interests.
