How it works

We use the same time-tested process as our Reading & Writing program, but with free online articles instead of books.


Step One:

Students learn about current issues by reading a range of online articles, from international news to the latest sports headlines and scientific developments.


Step Two:

Students expand their vocabulary, respond to discussion questions, and analyze the article by writing an essay.


Step Three:

Students revise their essay based on teacher feedback, correcting grammar, fixing organization, and improving paragraphs with strong examples.
