Mrs. Brewington from Trinity AL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Do you Live Under a Rock?

My students need Scholastic News to bring current events into the classrooms and replace our outdated social studies materials.

My Students

My students are enthusiastic, creative, and intelligent. These inquisitive young minds want to learn about the world around them.

Many of my students come from low-income homes that do not have extra money to spend on books or magazines.

These students yearn to have educational materials that promote learning through real life stories and current events. Scholastic News can provide that!

Their families have financial challenges and having magazine subscriptions coming to their home is unattainable. Students want to improve their reading skills but regular classroom Social Studies textbooks are boring and repetitive. Young students don't want to take these books home but they would love having Scholastic News magazine! This is possible with your help.

My Project

All students need access to high-quality magazines that are interesting and age appropriate. They need access to factual news media that focuses on current events that relate to them. Scholastic News can do just that!

Students at our school are living under a rock, so to speak.

We do not have access to current event magazines. These students do not know where the middle east is located nor do they know what is going on over there. They do not know what is happening in our government and how it affects their lives. They are sometimes misinformed by well meaning individuals.

Scholastic News will provide my students will current event articles and information pertinent to their lives. This subscription will provide them with a avenue for learning about events taking place right now in our world. Students can investigate, research, and dissect relevant news

and make opinions and decisions based on facts.
