Scholastic News is a ready-to-go resource designed to meet a variety of teaching needs. Many teachers use the magazine to help their students build informational-text reading skills. Others use the print and online resources to teach current events and support their science and social studies curricula.

Some teachers simply assign the print and digital features for independent reading and homework.
