All the Genres and Skills You Need to Teach in One Magazine

Take a closer look at Scope's dynamic ELA resources:  

  • Designed for the Common Core, Scope combines thrilling complex texts with rigorous support materials to build skills in every strand of the standards. 

  • Our wide range of genres includes informational and narrative nonfiction, short fiction, infographics, debates, speeches, and dramas based on myths, classic literature, and history.

  • Paired texts explore one topic or theme through two or more genres, requiring students to synthesize, analyze, and make meaningful cross-genre connections.

  • Challenging reader tasks support every text and require students to apply ELA skills directly from the Common Core.

  • Scope Online features in-depth support with dazzling videos, audio articles, activity sheets, and quizzes modeled on key assessments. Many activities are available at two or more levels to help you differentiate instruction. 

  • Build argument writing skills with debates that feature thoughtful writing prompts and clear essay templates. 

  • Printed Teacher's Guides feature easy-to-use, step-by-step lessons that include close-reading and critical-thinking questions, standards correlations, essential questions, and a breakdown of each article's complexity factors.
