Just like the adult publication, SI for kids builds its brand with great photography. And while the subscription-based publication makes sense for a classroom periodicals collection based on it high appeal, especially for reluctant readers, educators may want to consider its broader uses in the classroom. For example, the “Freeze Frame” photos — nearly a full two-page spread each — capture such fascinating moments, they could be used as writing prompts to describe what has led up to this moment or what’s going on inside an athlete’s head. Indeed, the magazine itself offers readers the opportunity to write captions for photos. There are also lots of graphic representations of data (graphs, charts, timelines) that could be deconstructed for what makes for an effective presentation. Of course, there’s also reprints from the regular magazine, providing models of top-notch journalism, and a chance to for students to identify elements of literature, such as figurative language and other devices, in mediums appealing to them. Although there is advertising, it is not nearly as heavy as the adult version — and, besides, the sports photos are way more enticing. ( )
