This totally gross, totally fascinating article about the history of dentistry is paired with a short editorial on the problem of "dental deserts" in America. 

This fun debate poses the question: Should the U.S. discontinue the penny? Students read arguments on both sides and then take a stand.

This lovely short fiction story by Jason Reynolds from the April 2020 issue of Scope is sure to be a fave. Students can even listen to Jason Reynolds himself read the story aloud as they follow along. (The audio read-aloud is located at the bottom of the story page in Student View.) 

This gripping narrative nonfiction article from the December 2019/January 2020 issue explores one of the greatest mysteries in American history: What happened to Amelia Earhart? 

This work of literary nonfiction from the May 2018 issue draws your students into the world of the American wolf, exploring how these fearsome and important creatures are making a comeback and the threats they continue to face.

These paired texts from the March 2019 issue are sure to delight and fascinate your students. Two nonfiction texts explore the fact and fiction behind everyone’s favorite fantastical creatures, including Bigfoot, giant squid, mermaids, and dragons.

This gripping work of nonfiction from the November 2017 issue of Scope describes the biggest non-nuclear explosion in history: The 1917 Explosion in Halifax Harbor. Students can also watch a Behind the Scenes Video by scrolling to the bottom of the article page in Student View.
