Help My Students Engage With the World

My students need a weekly subscription to Weekly Reader in order to improve their reading skills and to learn about the world around them.

My Students

This year my school is implementing an intervention class, for students struggling to meet grade level standards in English and math. Rather than do more of the same drills, I am seeking to engage my students with the world and improve their reading and writing skills at the same time.

My middle school students are at a low-income school in Southern California.

The students in my intervention class are diverse-we are a multi-cultural school and there are Latino, African-American, Asian, Pacific Islanders...you name it, it's in my classroom! This diversity is an opportunity for discussion and growing in understanding of other cultures.

My Project

The Weekly Reader magazine comes weekly (hence the title), is all color, engaging, and at an appropriate reading level for my students. I had these magazines last year, and the kids would excitedly flip through them and start reading right away-even my reluctant readers were interested. My goal for my intervention class is to have students read the articles, complete activities to improve their reading comprehension, and then have weekly discussions on the current event topics covered in each issue. The students will learn speaking and debate skills, and engage with one another about meaningful topics.

I believe in this project not only because it will help my students English skills, but because it will make them global citizens.

In this era of globalization, it is vital that students learn about not only history, but the present. This project will expand the minds and challenge the ideas and beliefs of my students.
