Coming Soon: Study Skills, Grammar, and more!

March 01, 2022

Three new features are coming to the Learning Center this August. Some new content is already available. Here are the details:

  • We're Creating an Academic Support Program to help students successfully transition to college. Called Stepping Up, the program teaches time management, note-taking, active reading, effective studying, and test-taking skills. The first activities are available now. More are coming soon. Look in the assignments menu to see them. 
  • We're Launched a Grammar Bank to teach key grammar skills to Adult Basic English, ESL, and reading students. Featuring new exercises, tests, and a lesson for each skill, the Grammar Bank comes with a subscription to English Plus or Total Access. The first 10 chapters are available now for immediate use, with the rest coming soon.
  • We've Added a Reading Activity Report for teachers and administrators. This enhancement allows educators using any ebook subscriptions (including Reading UnlimitedTownsend Library, and the Bluford Series) to view how much reading students are doing. The goal? To give students credit for--and to encourage--independent reading. Try it today! 

Each item above is free to teachers with approved instructor accounts in the Learning Center.  Please reach out to our Support team if you have questions or would like a guided tour of these new materials.
