Our Mission

Studies Weekly is a customized, standards-based curriculum founded on deep learning strategies that increase student knowledge, skills, and dispositions for
well-being.

About Studies Weekly

We integrate printed weekly units in newspaper format with web-based multi-media resources to share stories and teach standards. This print/web combined platform creates high-level Student Engagement and facilitates Deep Learning and Critical Thinking.

Our embedded lesson plans and assessments foster Good Decision-Making skills because we know that standards inform (cognitive domain) and stories inspire (affective domain). Thus, intellectual intelligence and emotional intelligence are engaged. Together, these learning experiences inspire human hearts, engage minds, and profoundly impact student well being.

Leadership

Paul David Thompson
FOUNDER, EDUCATOR FOR 32 YEARS
May 18, 1936 – July 4, 2013

Studies Weekly began in 1984 when fourth-grade teacher Paul Thompson needed a state history textbook to use in his class. He decided to write his own state history textbook — in a weekly magazine format — and Studies Weekly was born.

I’ve been directly involved in educational publishing since 1990. I feel so fortunate to have had this career. It’s always been my life’s dream.
