Being counted, in both the 2020 election and the census, matters. Democracy matters. The pandemic needn’t stop us from teaching students how to participate civically in these and other ways! From now through the election, you can access  the “Stand Up and Be Counted” issue for free, along with all of the related online audio, and use the “read and comment” option available for each article. To access this free issue, please sign up here.



Racial discrimination in the U.S. is a 400-year-old problem that has recently exploded into public consciousness once again. All of our issues include a racial equity dimension, but the “Talking About Race” issue has especially strong resources for talking about race in the classroom. Thanks to some extra funding, we are making this issue FREE for a full year. To access it, please sign up here.

Our September 2020 issue includes powerful and moving articles by students reflecting on their experiences during the pandemic. To receive this forthcoming issue, please subscribe.
