Mr. Wrabley from Johnstown PA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Make America READ Again

Help me give my students subscriptions to current events news articles that are challenging and structured to foster reading comprehension and critical thinking skills. We will also practice writing and debate skills with the articles within these magazines.

My Students

My students have a genuine curiosity in the events that shape the world around them. However, they get their information primarily from TV or 10-second Snapchat posts. I want my students to build a passion for continuous reading, discovery learning, and analytical thinking. Here's to reading!

84% of students at my school live in poverty, and 100% of students receive free or reduced lunch, ranking in the top 5 highest-poverty-concentration school districts in PA.

Reading is a cost-effective "vacation" or escape. Students' education and future should not suffer as a result of their current financial and social circumstances. These students are an investment in which everyone has a stake. They will be the builders and creators of our community, the employees of our businesses, and the leaders of the next generation.

Building a passion for education and civic responsibility is imperative in preparing these children for the future. A middle schooler's mind is curious about infinite different things, and it is crucial to reinforce the positive goals and milestones, rather than the negative. For anyone (but my students especially), education is the greatest asset and strongest tool to utilize in building a better future.

My Project

With standards-aligned content reading, my students will become stronger readers, writers, and independent learners. The Scholastic series of current events magazines carefully structures reading and writing activities with research-based methods to effectively build academic skills. In addition to the articles and assignments that come with these resources, my students will take their learning beyond the classroom.

We will incorporate projects, aligned with the Scholastic resources, that provide students the opportunity to read, write, and think like an investigator or a reporter.

Students will conduct research and interviews in ways that allow them to become a creator of knowledge and information, rather than just a receiver.

Donations to this project will improve my classroom by creating additional opportunities for my students to build skills that will shape their future.

With these bi-weekly Scholastic news journals, students will have the tools to engage in meaningful, academic conversations. They will ask questions and seek solutions. They will analyze relevant world news and apply concepts to their daily lives. To light this flame in middle school is a fundamental step in creating lifelong learners.
