" What's Up?" is an ESL magazine online, and it publishes writing of ESL students at Arizona Western College. It is an ongoing project where any ESL student may have one of his/her writings from an ESL class published online. It encourages students to write and to recognize the value of their writing. The session will show the magazine and provide a handout about the format for making such a magazine.
