Today's Learners, Tomorrow's Civic Leaders
My students need Scholastic News in order to learn about current events, make real life connections, and learn about different cultures around the world.
The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think criticallyÂÂ¦ Intelligence plus character, ÂÂ"that is the goal of true education.
~Martin Luther King Jr.
It's important to teach civic duty, history, and current events to our future leaders.
Teaching and learning in social studies is powerful when it is meaningful, relatable, challenging, and active.
My 5th grade students are energetic, and have a desire to learn. We are a Title I school with minimal resources. We have great parental support, but, as other school, we are not financially able to purchase all the materials that we would like.
I would like to be able to integrate current events, and expose my students to different cultures and places around the world. Scholastic News will provide them with an opportunity to explore different subjects, and be able to work collaboratively and expand on that information creating hands-on projects and integrating technology. They will be able to read about an event, research it on the Internet, and create presentations using technology devices.
My students will benefit from being able to learn about current events and how they can be positive contributors to our society.
Students will be able to read exciting, relevant articles and work collaboratively to make connections, and apply real world situations. Scholastic News is an appealing, age appropriate way to get them excited about reading, and appeal to various learning modalities in the classroom.
