Love for Literacy!

My students need rich non-fiction text to help prepare them for the FSA. Junior Scholastic magazine provides relevant articles that students are interested in and I'd love to provide them for my classes.

My Students

My students attend a Title I school with limited resources. Most come from tough home lives and school is where they go to get away from the stress of their family and homes. I teach 6th grade students who are either in an ESOL class or special education students with varying needs. My students are reluctant readers and I'm hoping that providing them with interesting text will give them a love of literature and reading and improve the overall literacy in my classroom.

My Project

Scholastic magazine has been proven to increase test scores and reading levels for reluctant readers while providing engaging reading material that is current and age appropriate for middle school students. My students are some of the most reluctant readers and I hope with these magazines I can invoke in them a love of reading. I'm confident that these materials will provide what my students need to get a better grasp of the language arts standards while also providing thought provoking and engaging rich text. I'm excited to get the online component to use with the magazine to use this to it's fullest potential.
