Project Critical Thinkers!

My students need access to engaging current event material provided by Junior Scholastic.

My Students

My students live in a small, rural community. They are rooted in community pride but they are eager to learn about the world beyond their small town. Having just left elementary school, they are experiencing new freedoms in the Middle School setting and are finding their own paths in their educational experiences.

They are excited to learn about new topics and thrive when presented with ideas, cultures, and current events that range beyond our city limits.

They will rise to challenges that are presented to them. They are becoming young adults and are experiencing the idea of free thinking for the first time.

My Project

Making current events relevant to students. Engaging them in a manner that sparks debate and emotion for the world around them. This magazine produces articles that are relevant and important to the state of our country and the state of our world. The next generation of voters and thinkers needs early exposer to these ideas and issues.

By incorporating these current event materials, students will get the opportunity to actively think instead of just listening and repeating information.

My hope is that by making current events a weekly part of our history class, that all students will be engaged in the learning process and have a chance to be exposed to a variety of topics that will hopefully spark and fuel passion that encourages a taste for life-long learning.
