My students need 25 Scholastic News subscriptions.
What does it mean to vote? Where does our produce come from? These are some of the things that my students need to know but are limited by their surroundings and socioeconomic background. I want to expose my students to non-fiction text!
My students come from a very high poverty area.
They attend a title one school where 98% of the school receives a free or reduced lunch. They are eager to learn but have limited resources and opportunities to meet their curiosity. Due to these limitations they come to school expecting to receive stability and structure as well as equal opportunities for learning that other students in more affluent schools receive.
My students are lacking in experiences and exposure to important scientific and social studies vocabulary due to their socioeconomic status. They deserve to be exposed to the same thing that other students receive. This resource will create a fun and engaging way to expose them to non-fiction text.
This Scholastic News will impact student learning and give them exposure to information that they wouldn't normally receive in their daily life.
It will create class discussions on real life situations and topics.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
