Keeping Informed with Scholastic News

My students need 60 subscriptions to Scholastic News to give them interesting nonfiction reading with topics that pertain to their lives.

My Students

Jonathan Coe once remarked, "Ah, well, I have no talent for nonfiction, that's my problem." That is the problem facing my students today... the difficulty of reading and comprehending nonfiction text. This stems from them not being exposed to nonfiction text that is relevant to them.

The school I teach at is located in a small town in Louisiana.

My students come from a variety of backgrounds. They are a very inquisitive group of kids who have a love of learning and sharing their knowledge. They get very excited when they learn new facts about something or someone that they think is "cool". They love interesting facts, but they become discouraged when faced with a traditional newspaper.

My Project

My school district has moved to the Common Core Curriculum this year. The big push in ELA is reading and comprehending nonfiction text, in order to prepare students for life outside of school. Finding nonfiction that is appropriate, and interesting, for 5th graders is difficult. Scholastic News is designed with students in mind. It contains news stories that are written on an appropriate reading level, and in a way that sparks their interest and imaginations.

Educators have a very difficult task.

They are preparing students for jobs that are filled with nonfiction texts... reports, manuals, and journals to name a few. Students need to begin interacting with nonfiction at an early age if they are to be successful. Your donation will ensure that my students are being provided with materials that are age and interest appropriate. They will be getting the education they need to be successful in life
