Immerse students in outstanding literature while developing critical reading and writing skills
Captivate student interest with classic and contemporary texts.
Each of the six anthologies incorporates a literary analysis feature for every selection. The Literary Lens activities provide the focus for close reading, questions for discussion and collaboration, and prompts for written responses.
The streamlined lesson design and focused skill development enables quick lesson planning and easy classroom implementation. Integrate into your curriculum by unit, selection, or learning objective.
Interactive Editions feature a range of learning tools to improve comprehension (translation, text-to-speech, reading accessibility features), close reading and text analysis (annotation and note-taking tools), discussion and collaboration (real-time Collaboration Walls), and much more.
