Howling for Home

HSPA Foundation offers a serial story – “Howling for Home” by Joan Carris – for newspapers to print free.

This 10-chapter story about adopting a dog and all that it means to the dog and family can be reviewed (sample chapter, author study and curricula) at http://ncpressfoundation.org/serial-stories.

In addition to the story, you receive a word count, sidebar, news connection, teaching guide, creative opportunities for students, multiple-choice questions with answers and more.

Indiana newspapers may run the story by signing a contract with the HSPA Foundation. For more information, email Shawn Goldsby at sgoldsby@hspa.com.

This story is available to use through August 2014. The Indiana State Reading Association and the Indiana Newspaper in Education Foundation provided funding.

More serial stories

You will find four stories (one with two parts) by Artie Knapp on the serial story page of the developing North Carolina Press Foundation website.

Knapp’s stories may be used during the summer and other times. No restrictions apply.
