Shmoop has allowed our program opportunities for student learning far beyond the typical box and traditional methods.
Mountain View, California (PRWEB) September 01, 2015
"Back-to-school season is the least stressful part of the year"...said no one ever. After going to twelve different stores to get the exact supplies needed for the upcoming year, the last thing students, teachers, and admins want to do is continue the pattern once school is in full swing.
Enter: Shmoop University, Inc., a digital publisher known for its award-winning Test Prep and certified Online Courses. Shmoop (http://www.shmoop.com) is a one-stop shop for all things education, which means that once everyone has their graphing calculators and three-ring binders ready, they'll only need to go to one place for the rest.
And what is "the rest"? Shmoop knows what's on everyone's mind this year: big ol' changes to the SAT® and PSAT/NMSQT® exams. The College Board likes to switch things up what feels like every 15 minutes, but Shmoop is on the case, with updated prep materials for both tests, including diagnostic exams, targeted and comprehensive review, loads of drills in each subject, and several full-length practice tests. After prepping with Shmoop, students will be ready for anything the tests throw their way.
Feeling a little cocky on the test-taking front? There's more. Shmoop offers over 200 Online Courses, which can be viewed in its slick Course Catalog. All of Shmoop's core math and ELA courses include a credit recovery option, and those same courses (among others) are a-g certified, meaning that they've met rigorous iNACOL standards for online courses and are honored as part of the requirements for admission into the University of California system. Oh, and they're actually fun. Fancy that.
"Not only are Shmoop's online courses Common Core-aligned, but they also have electives and career readiness components," says Sam Brooks, VITAL Personal Learning Coordinator at Putnam County schools in Tennessee. "We feel like our students are better prepared to succeed at high school and beyond. Shmoop has allowed our program opportunities for student learning far beyond the typical box and traditional methods."
Shmoop offers hundreds of thousands of pages of free content, including Learning Guides, Study Tools, and loads of other resources that will hook students with humor and then teach 'em what they need to know. And this coming school year, Shmoop users can enjoy over $10,000 worth of premium products (including Test Prep and Online Courses) with one easy-to-use and pocket-friendly Shmoop subscription. It's already a steal, but bulk discounts are available for schools and districts by contacting sales(at)shmoop(dot)com.
The icing on the cake? Early this school year, Shmoop will be releasing even more resources for Teachers, including an Encyclopedia of Teaching and a set of Online Courses and Teaching guides dedicated to PBIS, a popular framework for behavioral interventions and supports. And, of course, Shmoop will continue to grow its huge library of top-notch content.
Shmoop offers hundreds of thousands of pages of original content. Their Online Courses, Test Prep, Teaching Guides, Learning Guides, and interactive Study Tools are written by teachers and experts and balance a teen-friendly, approachable style with academically rigorous concepts. Shmoop sees 11 million unique visitors a month across desktop and mobile. The company has won numerous awards from EdTech Digest, Tech & Learning, and the Association of Educational Publishers. Launched in 2008, Shmoop makes the magic happen from a labradoodle-patrolled office in Mountain View, California.
