Student Resources: Print + Digital
Just like teachers, students achieve success more easily when they have a variety of tools at their disposal. In addition to our numerous teacher resources, we offer students several valuable resources to further their learning, increase their understanding, and improve retention. Each lesson has an essential question, which allows students to reference the main goal of the lesson at any time and ensure they are focusing on the most important factors of the unit. Students also have access to both print and digital textbooks, with digital accessibility allowing for larger sized text, the ability to listen to the text being read, enlargement of images, and more.
