It would be helpful for me as a teacher if you could include more passages with related graphs/maps/charts and questions pertaining to them in your archives. Thanks. Love having them at my fingertips.

I find these articles really innovative and useful. My students really benefit a lot from reading the intricacies of each article and also gain knowledge on the various topics.

Today is my first time using this program. I teach special education students. I am pleased about the amount of reading required for each activity. This seems to be just what I need to reinforce various skills for my multi-level class.
