When given a place in the curriculum and our classrooms, popular culture texts offer a plethora of possibilities for teachers and students alike. In the case of popular magazines targeted at our students in the middle years - the tweens and teens of the contemporary world - this is particularly so. These 'textual treasure-chests' provide all teachers, regardless of subject area or year level, with resources and opportunities for working with their students in relevant, engaging and worthwhile ways. In this chapter, I demonstrate how these magazines, and the discrete text forms found within their pages, can be used across the subject areas of Science, Geography and English.
