Magazines For My Earth Science Class

My students need a classroom set (35 subscriptions) to Current Science magazine to be able to read about current topics of science in the news.

My Students

A class subscription to Current Science magazines will enable my students to learn more about Earth science, improve their reading skills and solve puzzles in my classroom.

I teach Earth Science to energetic and hard working freshmen and I love it.

My students must pass my class to graduate. I want to make my class as interesting as possible so they are able to retain the curriculum. They will be competing with all other high school students to get into college so I want to be sure they are ready. A good science foundation begins with their freshmen year.

My Project

Reading is fundamental and yet teaching reading skills is still necessary in our high schools. This classroom subscription to Current Science will enable me to include the literary component to my class while still maintaining high interest with my students and staying on the curriculum topic. Often students do not believe Earth science topics occur in the news except for weather and a natural disaster. Here they will be able to read about current Earth science topics which are news worthy and written with the interests of high school students in mind. An article about a new topic the class will cover can easily be assigned after they finish a test or lab activity--no wasted time. The magazine can easily be sent home to help an ill student stay caught up with the class or to be used as a supplement for a home-bound student who is struggling with a concept. Logical thinking activities are in each issue which makes the article fun for students. Reading skills help with all tests and college preparation.

Reading is a skill which needs to be improved by all high school students.

I want my Earth science students to have the opportunity to work on improving their reading skills while learning more about our Earth. Thank you for considering my proposal.
