The New York Times Upfront Magazine Subscription
My students need a class set of The New York Times Upfront magazine to read during our nonfiction, main idea-focused unit of study.
Based on the MSP data, our 7th graders struggle with critical thinking the most off all the strands of data. Using engaging texts during the nonfiction main idea unit of study is a key piece toward improving students critical thinking skills.
My students have a rich, cultural background and are incredibly hardworking.
My students love hands-on learning and reading about characters they can relate to in some way. My students show respect for diversity and bring their own unique perspective to class discussion each and every day. While our school is very old, we make the most with what we have.
Having an engaging and well-crafted classroom text will give students the gift of enjoying what they read. Many students lose interest when reading nonfiction text, so I want to support their learning by reading full-length articles together over the course of a month. My students will be able to hone in on their skills of determining main idea, looking for an author's subtext, navigating text features, and analyzing an issue.
