Check out our delightful new mood video! We made it to accompany our awesomely creepy play The Tell-Tale Heart, but you can use the video to prepare your students to explore the mood of any text.

Kim O’Bray’s colorful text marking activity is a key part of her close-reading process. Students engage deeply with the text by using colored pencils to mark everything from figurative language and unfamiliar vocabulary to central ideas and text structures.

Scope's glossary academic terms is a great way to introduce your students to the instructional language they will encounter in activities, classroom discussions, and directions as well as on assessments.

We have created a brand-new offering that we are totally obsessed with: a vocabulary slideshow! It’s great for all your learners, but especially for auditory and visual learners, as well as your ELLs. You can use it whiteboards, computers, laptops, and tablets.

Here at Scope, a big part of our mission is to open doors of curiosity for your students, to inspire them to pursue what fascinates them, and to help them become learners not only in the classroom, but outside of it as well. And what could be more fascinating than our Mars extravaganza in the September issue?

If you haven't had a chance to check them out, now is the perfect time! We offer this collection of activities in addition to the quizzes, vocabulary, and other support materials that come with each issue.
