My students need 30 subscriptions to Junior Scholastic magazines for in-class discussions, real-world application, and critical-thinking activities.
My students are intrigued to learn more about the world around them when they have the support of a teacher who listens to them. They crave the one-on-one attention and enjoy the daily interactions they have when we discuss new stories that might be of interest to them.
These young adults are faced with not having one of the best educational experiences thus far in my urban school district.
I want to provide them with a classroom that understands them and allows them the opportunity to engage in learning opportunities each and every day. As an overaged student, this program provides students with an accelerated program to get them back on track. The interest in the news around them, the national, and international news is key to developing their identity as well. They will be more perceptive and learning about others will only help build connective bonds to many others regardless of their race, gender, age, ethnic, or religious background.
The students will gain a greater perspective from the news stories we will be able to use to drive our discussions. I am eager to bring in another news source aside from the local and national/international online sources I use on a weekly basis. Students will be able to take this magazine home or complete in-class small group discussions that challenge their thoughts and primary beliefs. They will learn to take an active role in discussions and writing about current events and news stories that could relate to them or not. Students will gain a wider understanding of the world around them, key to opening their minds!
By donating to my classroom, you will know you've put a smile on my students' faces.
These young adults need to see that others want them to have the same opportunities as those in neighboring school districts. My students will be more open to discussing the news and will benefit from engaging in topics that might have been foreign to them in previous years. Give these kids the ultimate learning experience, by allowing them the opportunity to read, by reading about the Noteworthy News!
