The Weekly Reader

The venerable Weekly Reader classroom magazine not only looks updated this school year—with a new layout and eye-catching graphics—but a new study proves that it makes a difference in the classroom. The magazine, which each week makes its way to more than 90 percent of the school districts in the country, provides timely, kid-friendly discussions of current events and interesting stories, with different issues tailored to students of different ages. A recent study found that students who used Weekly Reader in their classroom showed significant improvement in learning and reading facts and vocabulary over students who didn’t.
