We know you’re still in the thick of it — developing social studies projects, tackling science fairs, holding parent/teacher conferences, prepping your students for end-of-the-year testing, etc.
At Studies Weekly, we’ve got your back.
Our product development team has been working hard to prototype two new product options.
7th and 8th Grade Social Studies
For you amazing, tireless middle school teachers swinging along with the moody hormonal angst of teenagers, we are now beta-testing Social Studies 7th and 8th grade publications!
Through year-long immersive learning, your students will question, discuss and truly experience history. As they connect with historic figures and events, they’ll be better prepared — not only for end-of-the-year assessments — but to take on their future civic duties as well.
You can expect the same engaging weekly newspapers you already know and love, based on rigorous higher-level standards. They are still hands-on and fully consumable, so your students can highlight, take notes right on the publication, and cut them up to incorporate them into projects.
Similar to our K-6 publications, your 7th and 8th grade students also have access to a beautiful online platform with thousands of primary source images and videos, a real-person audio reader, highlighting capabilities, extension activities and customizable assessments.
With these new publications, you will spend less time prepping for instruction, and more time engaging students with ready-to-use lesson plans that incorporate essential learning strategies and important writing and reviewing activities.
New K-5 Science
For you elementary teachers juggling all subjects each week, we are creating a completely new K-5 Science curriculum based on the Next Generation Science Standards. Our new science curriculum will utilize the 5Es and your students will Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate all aspects of science.
Each unit will center on a guiding question that incorporates student-centered learning activities, experiments and demonstrations. These challenge your students to test predictions, find solutions, draw conclusions and demonstrate their knowledge and skills. As they explore deeper, they will discover answers to the “whys” and wonders of science.
As their teacher, you will spend less time prepping for instruction, and more time engaging students with ready-to-use lesson plans that include tool and supply lists broken down by individuals or groups. These same plans include differentiated learning strategies and full integration of many math and English Language Arts standards.

So, whether you are a newbie heading into your first year of teaching, or a seasoned veteran extending your reach, our new Social Studies and Science publications can help you engage the imaginations of all your students.
