Britannica's new 21st-Century Explorer provides online reference and learning tools for students who read below grade level, are dealing with specific learning problems, or are at risk of falling behind. This user-friendly collection contains all of the resources that students need including encyclopedias, an atlas, historic timelines, a dictionary, news, and other essential learning tools. 21st-Century Explorer is ideal for reluctant readers, ELL and ESL students, and adult literacy students.
TWO ENCYCLOPEDIAS FOR DIFFERENTIATED LEARNING
Level 1 provides easy-to-read articles on all school subjects. Students will naturally progress to Level 2 as they build their vocabulary, improve their reading ability, and develop research skills. Both levels have Britannica's "Read Aloud" feature.
BUILD CONFIDENCE THROUGH LEARNING GAMES AND ACTIVITIES
Engage students with fun exercises that teach new language arts, math, science, and social studies skills. Interactive games allow students to practice and test themselves on what they've learned in the classroom.
Training materials, learning materials that are correlated to curriculum standards, newsletters, and other helpful resources help teachers take full advantage of the site.
"The main appeal of this product is that it acknowledges different levels of user need and ability and differentiates services accordingly.”
