Help Students See History Happening in Real Time

My students need 20 copies to Junior Scholastic magazine to learn more about history as it's being made.

My Students

John F. Kennedy once said, "History is a relentless master. It has no present, only the past rushing into the future." I hope to show my students that history is more than boring stories about things that happened many years ago. I want them to see that history is happening now.

I teach approximately 100 students in grades 6 through 8 at a charter school in Florida.

My students are curious about the world around them and how current events affect their lives. Because my students have varying abilities and cover a range of ages, it is important to use classroom reading materials that are geared for their specific age group. Junior Scholastic magazine is the perfect resource for my students.

My Project

I am requesting 20 copies to Junior Scholastic magazine to learn more about history as it's being made. The classes I teach include geography, U.S. history, current events, and debate. I can use Junior Scholastic in all of my classes. Each issue of Junior Scholastic includes articles on current events I can use with my geography, current events, and debate students. Junior Scholastic also includes information about American history. A subscription of 20 Junior Scholastic magazines will help educate approximately 100 students about history as it happens and about past history.

Thank you for considering this project.

My students and I greatly appreciate your support. Because of your generosity, 100 students will have access to a reliable and timely news source geared towards their age group.
