Literacy is the Spice of Life

My students need access to Scholastic Science Magazines to utilize print and digital resources.

My Students

I teach middle school science in southern Indiana. My seventh graders come into class each day to learn and grow up. I slow down the "growing up" part as much as possible, but these kids can't be held back when they put their minds to something. They love science. I love science. WE LOVE SCIENCE.

Many of my kids' families face challenges some of us only see in sad movies or reality shows.

They know what it means to persevere, and I know they will succeed. Our school is labeled "high poverty," but challenges are what we eat for lunch around here, so when it comes to school supplies, I have to find creative ways muster up the tools needed to complete learning projects and visual aides. It's hard to provide materials for nearly 200 awesome humans each day, so I need your help.

My Project

In my science classroom, literacy is the real lesson of the day. Each day we focus on scientific concepts, but we are sure to zone in on literacy skills - such as text features, author's purpose, and creating effective notations when reading non-fiction texts.

For students to be engaged in reading and writing in the science classroom, they need access to riveting, up-to-date periodicals to spice up their reading options.

Sure, we have textbooks and teachers can pull up articles online, but there's something to be said for the empirical data shared in a good ole magazine. Scholastic is known for keeping up with what's in the news and printing articles that create a student connection to what's in our global headlines. Nobody does it better than Scholastic.

What I'm requesting is a 1-year subscription of Science World (a scholastic periodical) for my class. With this subscription, my students will have print media in their hands and digital options at their fingertips. Scholastic provides a great website companion for their magazines and me and my kids would love to have access to these resources.
