5 Ways to Accelerate Learning with Magazines+
If you’re looking to accelerate learning this year, you need a source of engaging grade-level content that’s easy to implement and filled with scaffolding and support. Magazines+ is here to help with fresh, of-the-moment resources that build the knowledge and skills students need to thrive at their grade level.
1. Maximize Student Engagement
Motivating students to tackle grade-level content is an essential part of any acceleration strategy. Drive student interest and boost participation with deeply relevant, culturally responsive texts on critical content-area topics.
2. Ramp Up Background Knowledge
Lacking sufficient background knowledge creates another roadblock for readers striving to keep up with their peers. Increase vital content-area knowledge through short, relevant texts and videos on hundreds of popular topics.
3. Prioritize Social and Emotional Learning
Create a safe and supportive environment for learning with SEL resources that focus on student well- being. Easily integrate SEL into ANY content area with key competencies woven into our texts and lessons.
4. Meet Student Needs Without Remediation
Reteaching students what they’ve already learned is not the most effective way to bring them up to grade-level proficiency. Provide just- right scaffolding and support with multiple reading levels, Text-to-Speech audio, leveled assessments and other powerful differentiation tools.
5. Get More Out of Your Tech Investment
Your school has probably made some upgrades during the pandemic. Get the most out of them with a digital platform that seamlessly integrates with Google Classroom and most other Learning Management Systems.
