Scholastic Keeps Students Learning

My students need Scholastic Junior and Math magazines for their math and history classes in order to give them current news and teach them the importance of math.

My Students

A large portion of our 7th and 8th grade population consists of students who receive free or reduced services and are considered at-risk. 45% of the student body are a minority race with 59% of all students considered economically disadvantaged. 14% are limited English proficient.

Our school is known as a trauma-sensitive school due to the number of students dealing with some form of abuse.

These are the years when several students speak up, usually for the first time, about their abuse, thus making school the last thing on their mind.

Several of the shelters in our community are in our attendance area, making us a very transient school. These students have several large gaps in their learning because it.

My Project

Scholastic Junior magazine keeps students up on current events. It teaches them the life realities of people other than themselves and what good people do to help others. Scholastic Math magazine teaches students how math surrounds us and affects our everyday lives. The magazine poses problems that challenge students to think meta-cognitively.

Scholastic magazines will give my students the resources they need to show why mathematics is important and how history needs to be learned lest it repeats itself.

Improving reading skills will help students do better, not just in school, but in their daily lives. It is so important for reading to be infused across all subject areas.
