Nobody likes a teacher's pet...except teachers. That's why Shmoop (http://www.shmoop.com), a digital publisher known for its award-winning test prep and certified online courses, is proud to be a teacher's pet, beloved by educators across the country. Recently, Shmoop's overachieving ways have earned it a-g approval on ten elective courses, bringing its a-g course total to 20...and counting.

In order to receive certification, courses must meet iNACOL's rigorous National Standards for Quality Online Courses; according to the University of California A-G guide, approved courses "are to be academically challenging, involving substantial reading, writing, problems and laboratory work (as appropriate), and show serious attention to analytical thinking, factual content and developing students' oral and listening skills." Shmoop nailed it with each and every one of its core high school courses, along with ten electives including Women's Literature, Critical Thinking and Study Skills, and Greek and Roman Mythology.

Having received course approval from other organizations such as the College Board AP® Course Audit, Shmoop's catalog of over 300 courses now has the seal of approval from the people who count. Shmoop's standards-aligned courses include readings, scaffolded activities, teacher notes, and more, and all subscriptions and licenses come with access to Shmoop's virtual classrooms and gradebook. Translation: Shmoop is a one-stop shop for everything academic.

Ramiro Rubalcaba, principal of Azusa High School in California, says "Shmoop's comprehensive curriculum supports our efforts as educators. They have the tools to make learning relevant for students while still treating them with respect. The students then show respect and integrity in turn." Ahem...teacher's pet.
