Scope stories and articles serve as great mentor texts for a variety of skills. We love this idea from Kim Wagner, a Scope advisor and middle school teacher, for modeling the integration of research into writing.
Here at Scope, one of our missions is to give your students a window into the writing process. In this post, playwright Spencer Kayden discusses how she created our play Conquer the Sky, a historical fiction drama about the Wright brothers.
Audio articles are a powerful classroom tool. They can be used for differentiation, fluency, listening comprehension, engagement, and so much more. Every issue of Scope comes with audio versions of several articles, along with the vocabulary words and definitions.
