Rural Classroom In Need of Current Events Subscription

My students need 12 copies of READ magazine and Weekly Reader to reinstate a subscription that had to be canceled due to our district's financial distress.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Financially distressed school district in PA, High School classroom grades 9-12,creative and caring students in my special education class who are all deemed low-income.

I have used Read Magazine and Current Events in the past to give students a connection to the world outside of our rural school district. Due to trying times our school has fallen into financial distress and we no longer are able to obtain subscriptions.

We are in desperate need of subscriptions to Read Magazine and Current Events Magazine. My students live a life not like many people. Their homes are located deep in the forest far from any major city and many do not have cable television. Since our school also does not have cable television this magazine gave me a supplement to my curriculum like no other. As a class we could engage in fascinating facts and visualize what is going on in today's society throughout the world. The Read Magazine provides an opportunity for me to group my students and engage them in a play on a weekly basis and helps overcome barriers of teaching multiple age and ability levels at the same time.

Your help will provide my students with a connection to the world that they do not have through the walls of our small rural school.
