ISTE 2011: Junior Scholastic on the Big Board
There’s a new version of Junior Scholastic that has been adapted to be used in the classroom on an interactive white board. Aimed at 6-th through 8-th graders, the new social studies curriculum is free for teachers to use until the new school year starts at the end of August. On top of using it in the classroom, kids can access the variety of multimedia content at home. A big bonus is that each issue has a series of printable study sheets in Acrobat format. It’s just the start because other Scholastic publications – including Science World, SuperScience and Scholastic Math -- will undergo similar revamping, and will be just as free until the end of August. It can be seen at booth 1914.
