Scope-ing Out Real Reading (Common Core)

My students need 30 Scholastic Scope student magazines to help them explore a variety of genres and texts in reading.

My Students

Imagine reading a magazine that has all types of reading in that single issue: made up stories, informational articles, plays to act out, debates to support, and that it covered all different topics - literature, history, and current happenings. That's what Scope provides!

My 100 awesome 6th graders live in a small, rural town and come from a variety of home backgrounds.

While they all come from different backgrounds, most are only familiar with fiction reading. Very few are familiar with different formats of text (fiction, nonfiction (informational and narrative), dramas, etc).

My Project

Scope magazine combines thrilling complex texts with rigorous support materials to build skills in all standards. The articles relate to real-world, current events that are going on in today's world that interest today's student. Scope has also both informational and narrative nonfiction, short fiction, info graphics, debates, speeches, and dramas based on myths, classic literature, and history. These types of texts are just what the students need - variety of information in different formats. Scope uses paired texts to explore one topic or theme through two or more genres, requiring students to synthesize, analyze, and make meaningful cross-genre connections. In addition to text, Scope also has audio articles and videos. Students will be able to act out the dramas, create speeches & debates, as well as read fiction & nonfiction articles in the same issue. Students will learn that by reading a variety of texts helps them have a better understanding & deeper view of the world around them.

Students who are exposed to the variety of texts have a better understanding of what "real reading" in the real world looks like.

As adults, we look at multiple formats of information daily, and we need to be teaching our students how to read and evaluate these multiple formats so that they can become successful.
