High School Readers need Scholastic Magazine Funding

My students need subscriptions to 2 educational magazines to encourage reading skills for content and research that is of interest to them and is written for their reading levels.

My Students

Information is rapidly moving to short texts, twitters, or photos. Our students are not trained to read scientific or journalistic content for accuracy or to learn about a topic, even at grades 10 or higher.

My students range in ethnic and socio-economical backgrounds but are all online in one way or another.

At our charter school, we are trying to prepare them all for college and to be more scientifically literate citizens who can contribute to their community. They are intelligent, curious kids but have not had the exposure to literature repeatedly in a way that would make them objective, critical readers and thinkers. They have the ability but not the resources.

My Project

By providing my students with these magazines, I will be giving them the training to read critically, have fair, respectful discussions about a range of topics. One magazine is geared towards science (my subject) and the other is more social while still sharing relevant information about topics related to teenagers. By using the activities in these magazines and encouraging students to read more, they will develop key skills for success in life and in college. We can relate articles to classroom content or to news items, or to their own personal experiences and expand their world.

By funding these magazines, you will help students not just this year but in future years as these materials can be used again and again.

I already have some samples in my classroom and have seen several students who initially claim "I don't like to read!" slowly start by browsing and then a few weeks later, they come to me to ask questions, or tell me about what they read (with clear understanding). That brings me such a sense of achievement to know I have given them a new perspective!!!
