6th-grade teacher Mary Blow shares her excellent gallery walk activity, which familiarizes students with the challenging language they will encounter on high-stakes tests, reinforces key skills, and builds testing confidence.

Drumroll please! Check out our latest 60-second teacher workshop—all about how to use Scope's narrative nonfiction articles in your classroom. Think of it as mini-PD!

To celebrate Black History Month, we wanted to tell the story of Garrett Morgan, a brilliant entrepreneur and inventor. Among his many inventions was a safety hood that changed the way firefighters fought fires. As an African-American man living during the first half of the 20th century, Morgan faced prejudice, and his accomplishments went largely unrecognized.

There are so many wonderful aspects of Scope. We don't want you to miss any of them! So we've decided to create a series of videos highlighting how you can use the many features of Scope. Our first 60-Second Teacher Workshop video is all about our paired texts.

Scope debates are a fantastic way for students to practice evaluating an argument, identifying supporting evidence, and writing a well-crafted argument essay. Students complete a text-marking activity, engage in a spirited debate, then use our Debate/Essay Kit to write their own argument essay.

Teacher Kim Wagner returns to the Scope Ideabook with another WOWSA idea. We are in love with how she uses subheads for summarizing, exploring text structures, and identifying central ideas. So doable! So delightful!
