Hello teachers! Here at Scope HQ, we are always asking ourselves how we can best support you in your classroom: What problems can we help you solve? What challenges can we help you overcome? How can we help make your days more joyful?

Exploring Genre is a delightful activity that helps students analyze a Scope story through the lens of genre.

We were completely gripped by story of the biggest non-nuclear explosion in history: The 1917 Explosion in Halifax Harbor. One of our favorite resources we came across was an interactive timeline of the collision of the Mont-Blanc and the Imo.

The fascinating video will take your students back in time to the 1770's when people shopped at general stores, rode in horse-drawn carriages, and fought bloody battles for independence.

As the holiday season approaches, I wanted to share one of my favorite poems with you: “Three Gratitudes” by Carrie Newcomer. The poem is a refreshing, beautiful take on the Thanksgiving tradition of naming what you’re grateful for.

We’ve carefully curated 12 texts, including some of our favorite Scope features, and bundled them together to create one dazzling multi-genre resource around the themes of courage and resilience.
