I teach standard 8th grade English at Robert Smalls Middle School in Beaufort, South Carolina. Approximately 35% of our students have scored "below basic" on the state's standardized test. I have one class of 14 students who are reading four years below grade level. I came across the "Time For Kids 2006 Almanac," and have been creating lesson plans around articles from the book. All of the articles and activities are of high interest to my students, and the readability is challanging but doable. I would like each of my students to have a copy of the Almanac, as it includes many activities that I cannot copy. I am trying to prepare my students for high school. They are reluctant readers, and I feel the range of topics in the Almanac and the style in which they are written, will help my students in basic skills. I work hard to develop lesson plans that address state standards of instruction, and I feel that I can use the Almanac as a daily resource.
