At any rate, this and most other tutorials on Scribus should probably be
considered a "teacher's resource" anyway which the teacher then takes
concepts from and then goes from that. One would hope that the teacher
could make one or more finished products and use those as the teaching aids.
Many schools in the US have websites to which the children, even primary
school children, help design or submit information, such as newsletters.
High Schools have yearbooks that at least some senior class students
help design. When you look at some of them, you wish that they had been
exposed to some concepts of layout and design in their earlier years.
