I think that you are wanting something more like CreateDocument@Manipulate[Module[{k}, k = 1; k*s], {{s, 1}, 1, 10}] i.e., put the localization of the variable within the Manipulate. Remember that, in your original form, the document that gets created contains an instance of the localized variable, but that the generated document is occuring ourside of the Module (i.e., it is returned from the module) and so it has a "orphaned" local variable.
