We're Toasting You This Holiday Season!

Hello teachers,

Here at Scope, we feel quite blessed that we get to spend our days reading books and scouring libraries to research and write articles for you and your students. It seems like we discover something new and fascinating every day. (Visit our offices at any given time and you’re bound to hear, “I just discovered the COOLEST thing!”)

Creating the December 2016/January 2017 issue was no different. We learned all about the NASA space program for the nonfiction feature “Disaster in Space." We discovered how conservationists and scientists are working to save elephants and rhinos from poachers for the paired text “Can She Be Saved?” We explored the implications of Pokémon GO for the short read “How Pokémon GO Conquered the World." And we fell in love with the mythic hero Theseus in the play Into the Maze of Doom.

Fostering curiosity in your students is at the core of our mission. Our most fervent wish is that when your students open up their issues of Scope, they will feel the same thrill and fascination that we feel as we put the stories together—and that your students will be inspired to use the power of their own curiosity to learn more about themselves, their communities, and the world.

Wishing you and your students a wonderful holiday season!

Kristin
