The CloseReader supports the active reading of complex texts with embedded comprehension questions, text and audio prompts, translation tools, and contextual definitions of new vocabulary words.
A dynamic glossary and word look-up tool help students build their vocabulary. Transcripts and video captions allow students to follow along with the on-screen teacher, and eNotes enables students to synthesize information and record questions in a digital notebook.
This tool scaffolds the writing process for all students—from pre-writing to the final draft. Targeted writing instruction and practice in our content-area courses prepare students for narrative, argumentative, informative, and analytical writing.
