New Product Review: Edmentum’s Texas English I

Does your district have students who need to work at their own pace in English? Take a look at Learning List’s reviews of Edmentum’s Texas English I.

Edmentum’s Texas English I is a fully digital, comprehensive program for English I.  The material provides a variety of activities to support students’ development of reading and writing skills. The goal of the program is to provide rigorous, relevant curriculum through interactive, media-rich content.  

Students complete activities that are similar to those completed in traditional, face-to-face English classes, such as literary analysis, writing about reading selections, and collaborating with other students. The material requires the students to write for a wide variety of purposes and audiences.

Learning List reviewers recognized the variety of high-quality reading selections, and the provision of all required reading selections as distinguishing features. They noted, however, that students have limited choice in their reading assignments.
