This past week I discovered that Scholastic News is offering an online news magazine. It is available for different grade levels. I think this would be a great resource for informational text that is current. I found stories about sharks, space, tight-rope walking, and many other high-interest topics. You are able to print these articles or allow students to access them. It looks like it is set up to go along with their paper magazines, so some features are limited. I thought it was a pretty cool resource and I look forward to using it next fall.
