I can use student progress and assessments to discern which students need remediation and which need additional challenge in certain areas.

Shmoop, the beloved education platform known for serving hearty academic meals with a generous sprinkle of humor and approachability, recently launched a new site. This site, schools.shmoop.com, is gift-wrapped for educators, students, and administrators in Shmoop-licensed schools and districts.

Why the change? Why gild refined gold or paint the lily? Willy Shakes asks, and Shmoop obliges with an answer. Schools.shmoop.com is ad-free, no-nonsense, and perfect for the classroom. Plus, it's compliant with every acronym under the sun: HIPAA, COPPA, SSL, ICYMI...the list goes on.

Schools can use this site to prepare students for the SAT®, ACT®, every AP® exam in existence, plus hundreds of other national and state-specific tests. In addition, schools.shmoop.com has a curated collection of courses that fulfill college readiness requirements, state-specific requirements, and—let's not forget—intellectual curiosity requirements. With over 300 comprehensive online courses, students can learn about everything from finite math to women's literature to cover letter etiquette.

"Allowing students to work through content at their own pace, Shmoop will allow me to create a blended classroom, one that brings us together to discuss common topics or for me to present new material," says educator Elisabeth Hardy of Aiken County School District. "Students can then work alone to reach a common goal, and I can use student progress and assessments to discern which students need remediation and which need additional challenge in certain areas."

Need support in the classroom? Never fear: schools.shmoop.com is here. Schools and districts can contact sales(at)shmoop(dot)com for bulk discounts.
