We Want to Read Current Events!

My students need Junior Scholastic, a current events magazine that is written at their reading level. We are requesting a classroom subscription to Junior Scholastic magazine.

My Students

We live in an urban community in Indianapolis, and have few opportunities to engage in conversations about the larger world around us. We understand that we are interdependent of one another, and are looking for opportunities to discuss current events in our classroom.

We are a bright group of 6th, 7th , and 8th graders who are curious about the world around us!

We serve the Indianapolis community through our hard work and dedication to learning. Our school is a multiple intelligence K-12 magnet school that celebrates the uniqueness of every one of our students.

My Project

We are curious about the current state of our world. Unfortunately, our textbook does not update itself to reflect the many changes that occur every day around us. We need Junior Scholastic, a current events magazine that is written at their reading level. We will use these Scholastic magazines to provoke thoughtful discussion about current events. We have already been inspired by stories of such activists as Malala and Nelson Mandela, and we hope to have the materials in our classroom to engage in more enlightening and current conversations.

These magazines will improve our classroom's cultural awareness and expose us to the issues that are impacting today's global citizens.

Scholastic's current event magazines will even increase our global connectedness as we learn more about the world around us.
