Free educator accounts offer a plethora of features: Monday morning newsletters, class and student profiles, lesson plans, article assignment capability, and assessment score grade books.

Zoom in
Zoom In has more than just history content; after students work with primary documents and questioning, it provides writing support at two different levels. There are extensive teacher resources, including a youtube channel demonstrating different uses and steps to prepare. Teachers can create a class, and use a code to distribute one of eighteen different units to students. There is scaffolding for them to determine author's point of view, analyze and collect evidence, organize research, and write explanatory or argumentative essays. Assessment begins at the draft level, so that teachers may regroup or reteach needed processes as needed. The organization of the materials lends itself to independent study, small group, or class discussion. Appropriate for all grade levels.
