Magical Mailbox reinforces literacy by providing multiple outlets for student writing. This student-generated and operated repository, initially intended for student writing, has grown to include opportunities for sharing visual art, songwriting, music composition and other work.
Students self-select their best work to submit to the magical mailbox for peer review. Peer review boards design selection criteria, critique for acceptance or for improvement by author, and recommend selected work to be highlighted at Town Meetings, in publications or in other venues.
