Ms. Johnson from Crestview FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Rigorous Reading Request

Help me give my students rigorous reading materials that not only challenges their brains to perform higher order thinking, but also prepares them for the FSA ELA by providing them with a Scholastic Scope magazine subscription.

My Students

My middle school ELA students are learning that reading and education open up many doors of opportunity. They are also beginning to experience the results of the idea that better readers become better communicators. The hunger for knowledge my students show me every day in the classroom gives me so much hope for the future they have before them. It is my goal to offer them a welcoming, accommodating learning environment that fits the needs of all learners, regardless of their challenges.

My Project

Each year in Florida, middle school students are faced with the daunting and demanding task of preparing to take the FSA ELA (Florida Standards Assessment for English Language Arts). Within this challenging test, students are required to show proficiency in all of the areas of grade-level appropriate Florida ELA standards.

Each day in the classroom is a new opportunity to give students what they need to expand knowledge and work toward mastery of essential skills.

While standards proficiency is paramount, it is my goal to make this learning experience fun by offering engaging texts and interactive writing lessons.

Created by the brilliant minds of Scholastic Books, Scope magazine is designed to give students rigorous reading materials that address all of the grade-level specific ELA standards. A subscription to Scope magazine would be an incredibly helpful tool to help kids hone their ELA skills and keep things interesting in the classroom.
