What do our customers say about us?

Jen Mello
Jen Mello, Literacy Teacher, CA

“We have focused on integration this year as a district, and Studies Weekly was perfect to use to teach literacy skills through informational text and maximize our instructional time. Studies Weekly is so great because everything is on it. It can just be sent home, and the kids already know what to do with it. We love that students are able to write and annotate directly on the text of the articles to support the teaching of critical reading skills.”

Kristin Wolfgang, Kindergarten Teacher, TX

“I love Studies Weekly. The articles are engaging and rigorous, and my struggling readers can read along with the articles online. I am also able to integrate reading standards into my Social Studies lessons by using suggestions from the Teaching Supplements. Having the newspapers for the entire year helps me to stay on pace in presenting the social studies curriculum.”

Reginald Wright
Reginald Wright, Instructional Coach, TX

“When I first saw Studies Weekly, I thought, ‘This is awesome.’ It’s not a huge textbook, so it’s not intimidating at all. My students can read it and highlight it, circle it and write on it. Then they can fold it, put it in their backpack, and take it home with them. It’s just the best product ever.”

Assistant Superintendent, CA

“Studies Weekly has provided our teachers with an effective and easy way to teach their social studies and science standards to students in kindergarten through the sixth grade. The weekly curriculum has a variety of topics, digital support, and activities to use for quality student engagement. Our teachers love the primary sources too! They are able to engage their students in meaningful activities and discussions with a user-friendly approach. Studies Weekly has also provided our schools with information about the weeks that have content which is in conflict with our faith. Teachers can just use the online resources for those weeks with their students. Our teachers and their students love learning with Studies Weekly.”

5th Grade Teacher, TX

“Social Studies Weekly has allowed me to seamlessly integrate social studies into my reading and writing lessons! My “Students of Liberty” look forward to reading these weekly publications and sharing what they’ve learned. As a teacher, I appreciate how the units are organized and aligned to our curriculum. I highly recommend this resource!”

Coordinator for Social Studies, TX

“It’s particular to our kids and living here, and I like that I can be assured that I’m hitting all those main standards.”

6th Grade Teacher, GA

“I LOVE the depth and complexity of activities and prompts to offer to my gifted students. Often I provide them with an independent study based on those suggestions since they can read and understand the newspaper so quickly and easily.”

4th Grade Teacher, OH

“I greatly appreciate, like, and use the teacher supplement. The supplement is diverse and differentiated. There are many suggestions and ideas to choose from that will work for my diverse and unique classes.”

Teacher, AZ

“The best part about Studies Weekly is having access to historical information written at a student’s reading level. Often times historians do not write in a way that preteens could grasp, I really like having a resource that is understandable and approachable for my students.”

Teacher, CA

“The weekly publications are a nice change of pace from a regular textbook for both the students and our teachers. We love that students are able to write and annotate directly on the text of the articles to support the teaching of critical reading skills.”

Social Studies Teacher Development Specialist, TX

“‘Digging Deep into Informational Text with Social Studies is crucial!’ as an educator of 32 years, I stand by my quote. Working in the largest urban school district in the state of Texas, Studies Weekly provides the academic opportunities for students to obtain concise informational text from the classroom community to the global community right at their fingertips.”

1st Grade Teacher, CA

“I really enjoyed the Studies Weekly curriculum. It was effective and engaging for our students. The students really understood the text as it was written. It also had adjustable reading levels for each text. The magazines were fun for the kids, too! This is wonderful as far as space goes because it doesn’t take up any room in their already packed desks. It makes it easy for the students to follow along, especially for the younger students who have a hard time finding page numbers in big books. The google classroom link makes it easy to assign for our distance learners. Also, it asks comprehension questions at the end of each online assignment so no copying or sending home textbooks is required. I really enjoyed this curriculum and found it would be a great addition for our younger students.”

Teacher, CA

“The Studies Weekly team has been excellent in the sales, technology support, communication, and delivery of an outstanding Social Studies Curriculum designed specifically for our California History Social Science Framework and content standards. The Studies Weekly experts value customer input and concerns, and they are ready to positively respond. Innovation and service continue to be a company priority.”

4th Grade Teacher, OH

“Overall, I enjoy the primary source documents…these are the most important piece to teaching history!!!”

K-2 Curriculum Facilitator, LA

“Studies Weekly instructional design is highly motivating and engaging, which supports our scholars with retention of the information presented.”

2nd Grade Teacher, TN

“I do like the supplement worksheets a lot, and I am able to take grades for those. I feel like they allow for critical thinking without straying too far from the content in the magazine. Thank you for your time and for making me feel like my opinion matters.”

“If I were to take the Texas Studies Weekly out of my curriculum, I would be very very lost.

Teacher, FL

“I love that in the 5th grade unit the definitions are given, this is a major time saver as I teach 6 different subjects.”

District Lead Teacher for Social Studies, LA

“We implemented Studies Weekly district-wide for the first time at the end of 2019. We have had an overwhelmingly positive reaction from our teachers. First, Studies Weekly provides a solid content base for our students to use in order to complete rigorous activities in the LA Social Studies Scope and Sequence. Second, the consumable copy is a concept that the students enjoy. The visuals are great and the information is on grade-level and easy for students to comprehend.”

Assistant Superintendent, CA

2nd Grade Teacher, AL

“Studies Weekly is very Teacher and Student friendly. Is engaging for the students and simple for the teachers to use. I enjoy that assessments are built-in and can be automatically graded.”

Teacher, AL

“I truly LOVE the resource! I am glad to see the changes that took place this year. Keep up the good work!”

Teacher, CA

Curriculum Supervisor, TX

“Debbie Singson does an excellent job of taking care of my district’s needs. She needs a pay raise!”

STEM Teacher, 5th Grade Social Studies & Science, PA

“Studies Weekly customer support is the best. I have worked with them for many years! They are extremely responsive to all inquiries. Their willingness to customize training sessions for the varying needs of our teachers throughout the year is just what all districts need to succeed with teaching and learning. Each training we have received targeted exactly what teachers need to get started and enhance their social studies content. Studies Weekly even provides recorded, step-by-step professional development for every aspect of the program. Our district is excited to partner with Studies Weekly now and in the future!”

Teacher, TX

“Keep doing what you are doing! Debbie Singson and her team are great!”

Director of Elementary Curriculum, TX

“Since the beginning of our partnership, Studies Weekly has provided outstanding customer service. Immediately following our decision to adopt, Studies Weekly was ready and eager to ensure a smooth delivery of resources to every teacher. Our district was working on digital transformation and Studies Weekly took care of all necessary steps required in order to be integrated into the district’s learning platform before the school year got started. We receive ongoing calls and visits to check on our implementation and needs. We could not ask for better support with professional development. HISD has received “red carpet” treatment ensuring support for meetings and trainings after school as well as overwhelming support for our first Saturday Social Studies Summit held in December. Houston is working on messaging that Studies Weekly can and should be used to reinforce our Literacy By 3 initiative and our Studies Weekly family is with us every step of the way. We are looking forward to another Studies Weekly supported the event in March and are grateful for our partnership.”

Teacher, NE

“I had a wonderful time visiting and attending the Studies Weekly Summit. The team at Studies Weekly is very dynamic! I was so impressed with the quality of the sessions and speakers.”

Curriculum Specialist, GA

“Debbie Singson and the Studies Weekly team are AMAZING!! Thank you!”

Teacher, FL

“I thoroughly enjoyed both the PD and recreational experiences provided by Studies Weekly. I even used a vocabulary strategy I learned while there in a vocabulary PD I put on this week! I appreciated the opportunity to be a part of the Summit.”

Teacher, TX

“Oh my goodness! If others were as kind and helpful as your support staff the world would be a much better place. I do a lot more by myself now and it seems every year there’s some kind of jam up or drama happening around me. Not concerning you but from the job itself. Your staff has been so patient with me and sometimes explained things over again so I could understand and have helped me with “everything” I’ve needed, that means so much. Even when they probably wanted to pull their hair out or even mine they continued with great courteousness and respect and for sure with knowledge!!!! Anytime we had any kind of issues Studies Weekly has solved it, immediately! You are all Great!!! Thank You!!!!”

Curriculum Director, CA

“It has been an amazing experience to work with our Studies Weekly team throughout these past few years. Due to the great communication, logistics, and excellent packaging and labeling of all materials, the turnaround time for Twin Rivers Staff to process this has decreased every year and has made this a great experience. Thank you very much!”

Teacher, TX

Teacher, CA

“The weekly publications are a nice change of pace from a regular textbook for both the students and our teachers. We love that students are able to write and annotate directly on the text of the articles to support the teaching of critical reading skills. Their balanced literacy approach makes it so simple to integrate many of the ELA standards through informational text to maximize instructional time and student learning. The online platform offers text to speech, additional resources that don’t take up our cupboard space, engaging videos and interviews, and so much more. I personally love that Studies Weekly’s staff is open to feedback and consistently works to add new features that make the online experience even better and easier to use!”

Coordinator for Social Studies, TX

“Studies Weekly in Spanish is an excellent resource to engage and support our EL students!”

Director of Bilingual Education, FL

“Studies Weekly is a fabulous resource used by all our One-Way Dual language teachers. The articles and books are used in our Interdisciplinary thematic biliteracy Units of instruction. The ability to find Spanish and English literature for all diverse students is an added bonus that Studies Weekly provides to all our staff. We give Studies Weekly an A+.”

Assistant Superintendent, TX

“One feature that we love is the online component where they can read aloud the articles in the newspapers. That’s been huge.

4th Grade Teacher, CA

“The students and I have really enjoyed the Studies Weekly.  The information is much more complete and interesting than the old SS program.  The students like the short reading passages, earning coins for their answers, and watching the video clips that explain vocabulary and concepts.  The newspaper version is nice and colorful, although the computer version with the questions for each section and the ability to highlight key concepts was great.”

4th Grade Teacher, CA

“I like Studies Weekly. The lessons are engaging with much richer content than the prior curriculum.

-Great combination of reading, videos, and hands-on materials.

-Highly motivating coins reward system for students built into the program.

-Platform is very user-friendly and simple to find assignments and grades.”

*Students friendly and engaging

*Easy to access for students on Clever (especially for Kids learning from home) *Easy to assign to students

*Videos are wonderful, and kids love listening to the stories being read to them *Students love to collect “coins”

*No printing/copies necessary (all online)-teachers can make copies if they want to.”

“Our district uses not only the print materials from Studies Weekly, but we also engage our students with the variety of targeted digital materials that Studies Weekly provides for holidays and events such as Veteran’s Day and Presidential elections.”

Student Services Technician, CA

“As a staff member I get a lot of feedback from parents, and they are always positive. Parents and students both seem to really enjoy online content in each subject. I think Studies Weekly is a wonderful addition to our curriculum choices.”

STEM Teacher, 5th Grade Social Studies & Science, PA

“Studies Weekly is the program teachers have been looking for to efficiently plan and engage students! The digital and paper resources give teachers the freedom to create activities for in-person and remote instruction. Our teachers love the flexibility of the unit structures. Weekly planning involves numerous choices for the presentation of materials through various modalities ready to support the needs of every student. The program includes graphic organizers, projects, and videos to support a teacher’s instructional planning. The assessment features give teachers the ability to run reports to see students working with their content. Formative assessments give our planning the direction for the next steps. Studies Weekly makes it simple to run a report and get a pulse on each student’s learning. The integration with Google Classroom allows our teachers to communicate with students for assignments and feedback.”

Curriculum Supervisor, PA

“As part of our curriculum review process, our District was looking for a new Social Studies resource that provided both online and hands-on materials. Specifically, in grade 4, we needed to ensure that Pennsylvania content was available. Studies Weekly provided the resources we were looking for and had the Pennsylvania content. The most appealing feature is that students have the stories in newspaper format, which they prefer over a textbook. They can interact with it online or on paper. The online features allow students to highlight, underline, and circle which reinforces the information taught in class. In addition, teachers like the online quizzes and incentives for students. We are in year one of our adoption, and some technical questions have come up. Studies Weekly has supported and responded in a timely manner to address our needs. All in all, we have been pleased with the resource and support thus far.”

“Using Studies Weekly as my primary Social Studies curriculum has made it really easy to assign work digitally. After the first week, students got into a groove of reading the material, watching the videos, and answering the test questions by going back to the text. It has been perfect for my struggling learners and special education students because of all the read-to-me features included. I have received positive feedback from both students and parents. They love to answer questions and earn coins. The videos are fabulous and I have used them in class as well. Just recently, I started using some of the graphic organizers and I’m finding them to be very effective.”

“Our district uses not only the print materials from Studies Weekly, but we also engage our students with the variety of targeted digital materials that Studies Weekly provides for holidays and events such as Veteran’s Day and Presidential elections.”

Student Services Technician, CA

“As a staff member I get a lot of feedback from parents, and they are always positive. Parents and students both seem to really enjoy online content in each subject. I think Studies Weekly is a wonderful addition to our curriculum choices.”

STEM Teacher, 5th Grade Social Studies & Science, PA

“Studies Weekly is the program teachers have been looking for to efficiently plan and engage students! The digital and paper resources give teachers the freedom to create activities for in-person and remote instruction. Our teachers love the flexibility of the unit structures. Weekly planning involves numerous choices for the presentation of materials through various modalities ready to support the needs of every student. The program includes graphic organizers, projects, and videos to support a teacher’s instructional planning. The assessment features give teachers the ability to run reports to see students working with their content. Formative assessments give our planning the direction for the next steps. Studies Weekly makes it simple to run a report and get a pulse on each student’s learning. The integration with Google Classroom allows our teachers to communicate with students for assignments and feedback.”

Curriculum Supervisor, PA

“As part of our curriculum review process, our District was looking for a new Social Studies resource that provided both online and hands-on materials. Specifically, in grade 4, we needed to ensure that Pennsylvania content was available. Studies Weekly provided the resources we were looking for and had the Pennsylvania content. The most appealing feature is that students have the stories in newspaper format, which they prefer over a textbook. They can interact with it online or on paper. The online features allow students to highlight, underline, and circle which reinforces the information taught in class. In addition, teachers like the online quizzes and incentives for students. We are in year one of our adoption, and some technical questions have come up. Studies Weekly has supported and responded in a timely manner to address our needs. All in all, we have been pleased with the resource and support thus far.”

“My class seems to enjoy the economics lessons most. I like the primary and secondary source practice.”

Teacher, TX

“When I started Studies Weekly, the students got more involved. I think everyone should at least give it a try. I’m sure they will get hooked on it.”

1st Grade Teacher, CA

“I really enjoyed the Studies Weekly curriculum. It was effective and engaging for our students. The students really understood the text as it was written. It also had adjustable reading levels for each text. The magazines were fun for the kids, too! This is wonderful as far as space goes because it doesn’t take up any room in their already packed desks. It makes it easy for the students to follow along, especially for the younger students who have a hard time finding page numbers in big books. The google classroom link makes it easy to assign for our distance learners. Also, it asks comprehension questions at the end of each online assignment so no copying or sending home textbooks is required. I really enjoyed this curriculum and found it would be a great addition for our younger students.”

5th Grade Teacher, IL

“My students and I are enjoying Studies Weekly. The lessons are designed to keep the interest of students without being too wordy. The quizzes after each lesson are extremely helpful to reinforce key ideas. Students seem to love earning the coins as well. Thanks for creating such a thoughtful program around government and civics education.”

“Using Studies Weekly as my primary Social Studies curriculum has made it really easy to assign work digitally. After the first week, students got into a groove of reading the material, watching the videos, and answering the test questions by going back to the text. It has been perfect for my struggling learners and special education students because of all the read-to-me features included. I have received positive feedback from both students and parents. They love to answer questions and earn coins. The videos are fabulous and I have used them in class as well. Just recently, I started using some of the graphic organizers and I’m finding them to be very effective.”
