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?

Looking for a creative activity for those last weeks of the school year? We've got just the thing! After reading our fascinating short text about a famous bat colony in Texas, guide students along their own learning journey.

 

Amy Sylvester's fun and creative multimedia project is just the thing for those final weeks of the school year. After reading, discussing, and analyzing a Scope play, Amy's students turn it into a gorgeous digital flipbook by recording a reading of the play and illustrating it themselves.

 

We are obsessed with Kahoot and we think you will be too. It's a rare tool that engages all students, is great for multiple learning styles, creates opportunities for collaboration and interaction, and makes assessment a breeze. It's also super fun. Bonus!

Give your students this self-guided activity to practice the media literacy skills presented in the Scope article "Are These Stories True? (Nope.)"

 

Last February, I received a heartfelt note from one of Scope's advisors expressing concern about media literacy in this era of rampant fake news. Could I, he asked, address media literacy in an article in Scope?
