How do I use Studies Weekly?

Our print publications are meant to be fully consumed — highlighted, written on and cut up.
The example below shows just one method: the Studies Weekly Reading Label Challenge.
Students highlight facts, timelines, sequence, vocabulary words, main ideas and supporting details, etc.
You can also see how to create mini ELA lessons that ask students to identify pronouns and verbs.

What do Teachers say?

"When I first saw Studies Weekly, I thought, 'This is awesome.' It's not a huge textbook, so it's not intimidating at all. My students can read it and highlight it, circle it and write on it. Then they can fold it, put it in their backpack, and take it home with them. It's just the best product ever."

"We have been using Studies Weekly for several years and we love it. It’s very engaging for the students, and also teacher friendly. The lessons are great, and the online extra videos and resources are even better. The kids love earning points to create a house for their mouse. Great program!!!"

"I love Studies Weekly. The articles are engaging and rigorous. My struggling readers can read along with the articles online. I am also able to integrate reading standards into my Social Studies lessons by using suggestions from the Teaching Supplements. Having the newspapers for the entire year helps me to stay on pace in presenting the social studies curriculum."

"Finding a program that can be used to teach across multiple ages, grade levels and abilities is truly a blessing. Studies Weekly provides this for homeschooling, and we will utilize Studies Weekly until all three of my children age out of the program." ​
