    I want to collect some nonfiction articles that students would find interesting. I'm starting to formulate a plan to do a little nonfiction unit and want to collect some materials! Does anyone have recommendations?

    Go to Kelley Gallaghers' website and look for his article of the week link.

    Kelly is an awesome presenter, and very funny! I'm a teacher consultant with a Writing Project, and we're having Penny Kittle in November. Can't wait!

    I subscribe to the WSJ and use articles from it in my classroom. The writing is superb, and the feature pieces are quite entertaining.

    That reminds me, I get the WSJ for Students--I don't use it every month, but the articles are geared toward HS kids, and I get 30 copies for free. Don't know if they're still offering that, but it might be worth looking into.

    Also, Time and/or Newsweek have versions for students.

    Have you checked out sciencenewsforkids.org? Great science articles on current research. My students really like the ones about the human body, animals, etc.
