My Students

My students are high-achieving, talented students. Some of them travel over two hours to and from school every day to take part in our college-preparatory program that has had a 100% college acceptance rate for more than 30 years.

Although our students work hard to achieve at extraordinary levels, over 60% of them receive free and reduced-priced lunch.

Many of my students lack the necessary supplies they need to be successful in school. Despite these challenges, many will be the first in their family to attend college.

My Project

My textbooks are older than my students. The readings therein are not very interesting let alone current. Scholastic magazines will infuse my classes with current events and high-interest articles for adolescents.

No longer will students complain about reading French, but rather they will love to pull out their magazines to see what their French counterparts are interested in around the world.

In addition to the printed magazine, these subscriptions will also give my students to digital content full of audio and video activities which will allow the to hone their listening skills as well as their reading skills. Without doubt, Scholastic magazines will improve literacy in my classroom.
