We want our students to be up to date and knowledgeable about the world around them. Scholastic News provides a weekly, kid friendly version of the most current events related to them. We especially want them to understand and be informed about the 2016 Presidential election. We will be reading the magazine weekly to discuss current events. Many of our students are not exposed to the news or other points of view. Through reading Scholastic News, I will be able to facilitate debates and discussions regarding differing viewpoints. This will enhance the students social skills and tolerance of others. According to Edward F. DeRoche (1991), dean of the School of Education at the University of San Diego, research suggests many positives to including news in school. "-Students who use newspapers tend to score higher on standardized achievement tests -- particularly in reading, math, and social studies -- than those who don't use them. -Newspapers help teach students to be effective readers. -Newspapers can help develop and improve student vocabulary, word recognition skills, and comprehension. -Newspapers are effective tools for teaching many math concepts, particularly fractions, decimals, currency, and averages. -In surveys, students overwhelmingly support the use of newspapers in the classroom and have a positive attitude toward reading newspapers. -Newspapers increase awareness of and interest in current events. -Students who read newspapers in school tend to continue reading them when they become adults." (Hopkins, 1998)
