Is your district looking for a digital ELA product? Take a look at Learning List’s reviews of Shmoop ELA 9-12.
Shmoop University’s ELA 9-12 is an English language arts program for high school students. This fully online program is intended for students to engage independently. Shmoop’s goal is to “provide fun, rigorous, materials that engage and challenge.”
Shmoop University’s ELA 9-12 supports self-paced or blended learning environments. As students progress through the course, they complete a series of lessons that require them to read a selection and complete an activity such as writing to respond to a prompt about the selection. An Essay Lab guides students at each step of the writing process.
The materials are text-heavy, requiring students to read extensively in order to succeed with this program. Lessons are highly structured and all students generally complete the same assignments. Adaptions for special populations and tools for differentiating instruction are limited.
Teachers can monitor student progress through the digital classroom. To learn more about the student experience and techniques Shmoop uses to engage students , read Learning List’s complete editorial review.
