Learning®magazine started the Teachers’ Choice Award Program in 1994 and it is the only awards program that is exclusively judged by classroom teachers. The magazine’s teacher evaluators use each product in their classrooms, and winners are selected based on quality, instructional value, ease of use, and innovation.

Explorermagazine is a digital and print classroom resource. The magazine uses National Geographic’s engaging content to inspire students at all reading levels to learn about the world and become better global citizens. Each issue features three nonfiction articles that are Common Core Standards and Next Generation Science Standards aligned with content covering science, social studies, and geography. Each issue of the 24-page magazine includes accompanying projectible PDFs, a full-color, two-sided classroom poster, teacher guides and lessons plans, and a digital version with read-aloud text, videos, games, and pop-up vocabulary.

“We’re honored to receive this recognition from Learning magazine and its teacher evaluators,” said Lina Gomez, vice president, strategy & operations, at the National Geographic Society. “Explorer magazine embodies our mission of teaching kids about the world and how it works, empowering them to succeed and make it a better place.”
