Although I am a seasoned teacher, this is my first year using Scholastic News. I am thoroughly impressed, especially with the interactive feature! ALL students are on task and engaged when the BIG Scholastic News is on the Promethean board. I can hone in on the vocabulary, charts, maps, and videos to make the most of the magazine. The kids love to cast their votes in the weekly polls and see the results instantaneously!
