‘Howling for Home’
HSPA Foundation offers a serial story – “Howling for Home” by Joan Carris – for member 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
