We have a lively bunch of students who come into class fired up. We go through vocabulary as well as a grammar warm-up before getting to our daily lesson, focusing on a combination of reading and writing.
Our students are a diverse bunch of kids with colorful personalities.
They come from a variety of backgrounds, but they all struggle to overcome their barriers. Our school is comprised of 63% minority students, where 66% of the school population is economically disadvantaged. Each of our students receives a free breakfast and 65% of our student population receives free or reduced lunch.
We would like to receive the Scholastic Scope Language Arts Magazine to help our students better relate to and become more interested in the world around them. Often times the literature they are told to read is something they cannot connect with and it leaves them unfocused and frustrated.
This magazine, which comes out with new material monthly, is specifically published with middle schoolers in mind. A lot of our students struggle with reading for one reason or another and find novels and textbooks intimidating. The simple format of the magazine would be less daunting to them, allowing them to still get the benefits of literature in a more comfortable way.
With the subscription to the Scholastic Scope Language Arts Magazine, each student in the classroom will have access to a copy of the monthly magazine.
With the funds raised, we will purchase 45 student subscriptions to the magazine. The subscription includes 8 issues of the magazine with access to videos, audio, vocabulary building activities, differentiation plans and other teacher resources online.
