Scholastic News, Current Events and Civilly Minded Students

My students need 80 Scholastic News Magazines to learn about the world outside of our classroom.

My Students

Wouldn't you love a world of civic minded students that are aware of current events and understand the importance of taking an active role in the community around them? Help us teach our students, so they can gain a sense of their place in the world.

I am a 2nd grade teacher at a small K-8 liberal arts public school designed to educate Denver's diverse student population.

We are a Core Knowledge school that has taken on the task of educating our students with true equity. Our mission statement affirms that our academy "establish(es) and maintain(s) high standards for all students, providing them equitable access to the tools they need to reach their individual potential." Many of my students come from homes without the resources or time to provide the necessary opportunities for students to gain a real understanding of the world around them.

My Project

My proposal is for a class set of Scholastic News Magazines that will allow me to give my students a resource which will help them access current events. My co-teachers and I will plan lessons where students can practice critical thinking, while developing listening and speaking skills.

As the holiday, gift-giving season approaches, I can't help but think about the number of my students that will not receive gifts this year.

Your gift can show my students that they are being thought of, and even more importantly believed in, by people in our community. This gift can light the spark, creating civic-minded students who want to pay it forward.
