From My Classroom: I am an instructional coach for ELA so I use Choices Magazine in grades 6-8 ELA. My teachers and I like to use the articles to spark debate, and sometimes to design and teach the art of essay writing. I particularly love the topic choices, because they are so appropriate and engaging for this age level.
