High Interest Reading

My students need high interest reading to engage them in learning about the events and topics they care about.

My Students

"Reading is boring!" Too many times these are the words spoken by students today. Scholastic News magazines allow teachers to engage students in high interest reading using current topics while at the same time teach students the technical skill of non fiction reading.

The student population consists of girls and boys in grades 9-12.

The district has a large Native American population and has a high poverty rate. The community is a rural community and the highschool serves approximately 650 students in grades 9-12. Students have the opportunity to take advanced placement classes as well as options to attend a vo tech campus or a college campus while they are attending high school. We serve a large number of students with special needs and remedial needs as well.

My Project

The resources being requested will be used in the English and Reading classes and among many levels. These magazines engage students but also allow teachers to access a website that is Smartboard accessible. Using the Smartboard teachers are able to do vocabulary building excercises, watch short video clips to gain student interest as well as print off core curriculum aligned materials for students to use. The access to the website comes with the subscription to the magazines. These materials will be shared by many teachers and housed in the library for check out. This will allow for optimal student and teacher use.

This magazine will help engage students in reading and build a love and desire for reading which is lacking in many students today.

Teachers will be able to utilize this resource to bridge the gap between reading and writing. Writing is a key part of preparing students for life during and after high school. This magazine helps to provide high interest, relevant topics for discussion and writing prompts designed to develop high level thinking skills.
