Literary Cavalcade;May2005, Vol. 57 Issue 8, p3
The article focuses on the last issue of Literary Cavalcade, a magazine that since 1948 has brought students and their teachers current writing of high quality, powerful advocacy for young writers, and, at its best, a sense of freshness and surprise. To teachers especially, the magazine represented a source of current literature in high schools where English was too often viewed as "irrelevant" or remotely connected to a 19th-century past. For Scholastic, Literary Cavalcade carried part of the original mission of the company established in 1922: to bring into the classroom the best of contemporary literature and social commentary.
