My students need a class set of the Scholastic Scope magazines in order to meet their English Language Arts objectives.

My eighth grade English classes are made up of highly energetic students with a range of disabilities, including intellectual disabilities, emotional disturbances, autism, ADHD, and specific learning disabilities.
These students read anywhere from a fourth grade level to an eighth grade level and therefore, my struggles lie with the difficulties of scaffolding activities for these different levels and closing the achievement gap within my student population.
Being a Special Education teacher, I am expected to deliver expert, highly diversified instruction to my English classes, but am not supplied with the extra, scaffolded, skill-based activities that my students so desperately need.
Scholastic Scope magazine is the must-have supplementary material for the eighth grade English classroom, packing thrilling, complex texts with rigorous support materials. These magazines will help fill the void in my curriculum by providing engaging multi-genre content, rich skill activities and thrilling videos.
With every issue of Scope, students will get a series of skill-based activities that will help them bulk up the skills they need to become strong, analytical readers.
Skills covered are central ideas and details, inference, text evidence, mood, tone, text features, and text evidence. The videos are a great way to engage students, build visual literacy, and set a purpose for reading. The audio articles can unlock a challenging text for struggling readers as well as build listening-comprehension skills for all learners.
