Scoping Out Reading

Help me give my students up to date materials. Scholastic Scope is an academic feature we have not been able to afford, ever. It can add variety to their reading while building essential skills.

My Students

My students perform, write, and discover every day. Some are incredibly gifted. They do well with their older texts, and they are attuned to the latest in technology. Whatever the case, they are hopeful and full of energy.

They dream, but they are not afraid to work.

As young adolescents, they are not always focused, not always completely there; but with engaging activities and challenges, they bring their full attention to the task. We are a diverse neighborhood with people of various backgrounds and status. These people make the task of learning look easy. They learn about themselves, each other, and the world.

My Project

Remember that Weekly Reader? For many, it was the best part of reading. So it is with my students. They need up-to-date reading that is relevant to their lives. We have book clubs. We have our old standard novels. BUT we don't have a lot of current non-fiction. My students can gain more non-fiction reading skills if they are reading materials that are both relevant and skills-driven.

My students need to grow in non-fiction reading.

When we look at how they are doing in reading skills, they are growing, but they consistently lag in non-fiction reading skills. That is what I would like to provide through the Scholastic Scope subscription. With items from the latest news and cultural events, they will have a way to become both better readers and better citizens.
