Students Becoming Informed Global Citizens

My students need Scholastic News publications in order to be fully immersed in nonfiction text regarding current news issues and the required Language Arts Common Core Standards.

My Students

The students at my school are a representative group of the best of our American Citizens. Diverse, hard-working families who take advantage of opportunities. Each year my experience with my students is enormously gratifying as I watch them grow in self-discovery and recognition of their individual potential. I make it a priority to introduce my students to the idea of being responsible global citizens, and they embrace this role with pride. Are my students in need themselves? Yes. But we are also clear about our role in the giving cycle.

My students have a history of giving back as much as they are given.

We have raised funds for people who have been stricken with disease to malnourished children on the other side of the world. When we have written letters to our generous donors from DonorsChoose in the past, students have been able to make the connection that when they are given a gift from someone it's like paying it forward when we give whatever they have to give to people who are in greater need. This is a culture that has been created at our school that I am proud to be apart.

My Project

The Scholastic News Publication will significantly support my students with accessing the required Common Core Standards for the following 3 reasons: The Scholastic News is graphically pleasing to students and provides technological tools that addresses the reading levels of every student, enabling any student to access information. The Scholastic News encourages youth to take part in conversations related to national and worldwide issues as well as developing them as critical and independent thinkers. If it were not for publications like Scholastic News my students would not read news papers and learn about current events in the world or within their communities that directly affect them. Once they begin to learn about the issues that our society strives and struggles with, they understand in more concrete ways their role as a citizen in the world.
