My Students

A typical day in Jr. high social studies is so much more than book work. Rather than doing history, we are reliving it, recreating it, and immersed in it!

My students are 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students from a rural community.

Our students love to learn and are enthusiastic to dive into social studies topics, partly because their social studies teachers are so passionate about what we teach. I love it when my students start asking "why" because I know they truly interested.

My Project

Junior Scholastic magazine is used every other week when it arrives to keep up on current events. We use it in all of our Jr. high social studies classes in 6th, 7th and 8th grade to read about politics, interesting inventions and trends, as well as controversial issues that allow the students to debate a side. My favorite was "should we keep the penny." We debated this article after examining it for claims made by each side.

Donations for the Junior Scholastic magazine will help students to read grade level appropriate material and stay current with events happening around the world.

It will also provide topics for teaching specific curriculum topics such as nonfiction text structure, making connections, vocabulary and debating using interesting and current topics.
