I am so very pleased with all that Action has done to connect with the CCSS. The materials, videos, companion texts and not to mention the differentiated text levels are a plethora of resources for me as a reading specialist working with students who are well below grade level in both reading and writing.

I LOVE Action! The Hunger Games feaature was perfect for students.

Marta Fischer (April 22, 2014)
Action provides “bite–size” learning. Action’s interesting articles grab the students’ interests while addressing educational necessities. Often my students are so engaged that they forget they are learning. Action’s articles are usually springboards for research projects or other types of connections.

Amanda Waller (April 23, 2014)
Students have increased test scores, and have moved up levels in Read 180. Students have developed a greater understanding and use of the skills that are presented and repeated in each of the editions of Action. They are always excited to get their hands on the newest issue.

I only used Junior Scholastic, Scholastic Scope, and Scholastic Action for my small group work and this year, I saw the most growth I’ve EVER seen. On the MAP test, one class went up 4.7 points (grade level and a half) and my other class went up 7.5 points (two and a half grade levels) and it’s ONLY MARCH!
