Read. Cite. Write. Quiz.

Students learn to read closely with built-in instructional skills practice activities that give them the opportunity to read, cite, write, and quiz.

Each nonfiction article includes a highlight and tag activity, a “show you know” writing prompt and a comprehension quiz. Students move comfortably into more complex texts and build the transferable skills necessary for success in the content areas as well as on summative assessments.

A personalized reading experience.

The Discovery Bookshelf personalizes and inspires independent reading practice like never before, guiding students to books that might interest them based on their reading history and reading level. Quizzes are available on more than 170,000 titles, and nearly half are for nonfiction books.
