    Has anyone or is anyone subcribing to "Instructor" Magazine? Is it helpful and would you recommend it?

    I've got two copies from the library now. I really enjoy the tip sharing and articles in the magazine. I found out about free field trips, and lots of online resources I wouldn't have known about. I like it! And it comes with a free poster (or two) each issue.

    Is this a magazine you have to purchase, or is it one of those where it's free for educators?

    It's a scholastic magazine - $6 per issue or $9.95 per year (according to a card that fell out of the magazine).

    Our school gets it for us to share and I read it. It is very good.

    I used to get it- good articles, not a "research" publication though...Kind of reminds me of 'Parents' magazine for teachers. (grad classes look down on articles from such magazines and want 'journal' articles for papers) My school gets it so I can read it but since I have so many opportunities for professional development I don't get as much out of it. For day to day stuff that I can use I really like Mailbox and Teacher's Helper.

    Our school library got it and I could check it out. I was about the only one who did too. Before I spent any money on a mag, I'd see what the school got.
