Ms. B. from Charlotte NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Magazines: Make America Read Again!

My students need high-interest magazines to build their background knowledge. The comprehension materials that come with high-interest magazines will enhance their close reading and critical thinking skills.

My Students

My students are from a culturally diverse (IB) International Baccalaureate school in Charlotte. This program encourages our students to have a global perspective and the curriculum is based on the inquiry model. Many of our students come from high poverty backgrounds, but education is seen as a means to contribute to their local and global community in this IB program. Our students who thirst for knowledge are innovative learners who aspire to make the world a better place. They are change agents who possess the character traits of future leaders, innovative creators, model citizens, and compassionate individuals.

My Project

Research shows that students who build their background knowledge tend to have an academic edge and they ultimately become better readers after being exposed to diverse topics. High-interest magazines, especially those aligned to the curriculum, tend to entice students to read about topics they may not otherwise explore. Because the science and historical topics are presented in an engaging manner in these magazines, they keep students' interested. The common core aligned skill sheets that come with each of these magazines require students to use close-reading strategies and critical thinking. They will also use their digital reader response journal/blogs to respond to the articles they read. Research shows that writing about what you read also enhances comprehension.
