Over the past few months, many of you on Twitter have shared the ingenious, creative, and all-around cool ways that you have been using Scope in your classrooms. I couldn't keep these excellent ideas to myself, so I'm sharing a few of my favorites here.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is fast approaching and we wanted to give you a great way to teach your students about an incredible hero of the civil rights movement: Barbara John

The vocabulary slideshow is great for all your learners, but especially for auditory and visual learners, as well as your ELLs. You can use it on whiteboards, computers, laptops, and tablets.

We are very excited to bring you and your students the story of Sylvia Mendez and her fight against injustice in our play and video "The Fight For What’s Right.” This powerful drama brings to life the little-known story of how Sylvia and her family fought for school integration in California—and won.

We get so many fantastic entries for Scope's writing contests each month. Here's one winning entry that we wanted to share with you and your students. Have your students enter next month's contest and one of them could be our next Spotlight Winner!

We're giving you one of our all-time favorite plays: A Christmas Carol!
