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.

 

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?

 

I recently received an email from a Scope teacher that moved me deeply. She had just retired from teaching and was going through some old teaching materials, when she came across a letter I’d written to Scope teachers a couple of years ago.

Scope's debate/scavenger hunts are a great way to practice analyzing arguments. Now we've created a lower-level version for students who need more scaffolding.
 

We love this Sticky Note Museum activity from 7th-grade ELA teacher Jennifer Stahl—and not just because it involves a microphone! Jennifer gets her students up and out of their chairs by having them display their answers to Scope's critical-thinking questions on sticky notes around the classroom. Then students use a microphone to present their answers and respond to their classmates.
