Teaching with The Change Agent

The Change Agent online magazine features writings by adult learners and aims to inspire adult educators and learners to make civic participation and social justice part of their teaching and learning. Each issue explores a different topic through student writing, news articles, opinion pieces, classroom activities, poems, graphics, and cartoons. The Change Agent website includes many additional resources, including audio versions of articles, leveled texts, links between specific Change Agent articles and the College and Career Readiness Standards, and extra resources for each issue.

In March 2023, Change Agent editor Cynthia Peters joined Virginia adult educators to offer two webinars showcasing Change Agent resources and demonstrating how teachers can use them to to promote student reading, writing, reasoning, and engagement. She also shares how Virginia adult educators can use a VALRC-sponsored bulk subscription to gain free access to The Change Agent for themselves and their learners. Here’s an archive of those webinars:
