The American Scholar

Picture 11
I’m excited to announce that we have added The American Scholar to the list of academic journals and magazines that we now subscribe to.

The American Scholar is provocative and thought provoking and serves as an excellent alternative text that will engage students in higher level thinking and discourse.  While these articles may require some background knowledge and pre-teaching, they are certain to start some lively conversations in the classroom.

Here is an expert from the About page.

The American Scholar is the venerable but lively quarterly magazine of public affairs, literature, science, history, and culture published by the Phi Beta Kappa Society since 1932. In recent years the magazine has won five National Magazine Awards, the industry’s highest honor, and been nominated for awards sixteen times. Many of its essays and articles have been selected for the yearly Best American anthologies.”

Take a look at the current issue. You can access many of the articles online or check out the print copy in the media center.

Other academic journals and magazines we subscribe to include:

Advertising AgeAmerican Association for Advancement Of Sciences
Christian Science Monitor
Foreign Policy
Harvard International Review
Harvard Magazine
Nature Magazine
Rethinking Schools
Scientific American
