Greetings! I am a 6th and 7th grade ELA (that's English Language Arts) teacher at M.S. 223 in the South Bronx. Our mission as ELA teachers is not only to foster in-school reading, but also to turn our kids onto life-long reading. Some of my kids read because I tell them to, because they want to impress me. This is not good enough. In order for students to become life-long readers, they must develop more intrinsic reasons for picking up a book or a magazine. You and I read for many reasons: to learn, to amuse ourselves, to keep up with the world. Kids should read for the same reasons. Unfortunately, my library is not as complete as I would like it to be. We have little non-fiction and no newspapers or magazines. I find myself wasting too much paper, trying to make copies of articles that I know will interest my students. It is hard to stop, however, when I see the engagement that these articles generate. In order to foster this engagement, I would like to order subscriptions to the following excellent magazines: NEW YORK TIMES UPFRONT reports on current events of interest to teens. (“I love it; there are no words that can describe how awesome I consider this.” --Amazon teen reviewer) TEEN INK is a literary magazine by kids, for kids. (“It is a wonderful magazine that is enjoyable to be read and to consider sending in one's own work to.” --Amazon teen reviewer) MUSE is sponsored by the Smithsonian and discusses space, computers, etc. (“One of the main things about them that stands out to me is that they don't go down to the level of just plain pop-culture.” --Amazon teen reviewer) ASK introduces students to artists, scientists, inventors, and other great thinkers, living and dead. (“My students have eagerly written letters to the editor and entered the bi-monthly contests. I highly recommend Ask as an excellent magazine for school libraries, classrooms, and homes.” --4th grade teacher reviewer) My kids would go crazy over these subscriptions! They CAN be life-long readers. We WILL get there!
