How Can Teachers Use It?

With StudySync's 9th and 10th grade offering, there's a notable shift from the leveled young adult selections of the earlier grades to a focus on classic, canonical literature. Thankfully, all of the texts here come with a lesson plan; whatever your students' reading level, you'll have built-in support.

To make texts like Song of Myself, Crime and Punishment, and Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee even more accessible, consider using a theme-related Blast as an introduction, or use it midway through your literature study. High school students will eagerly embrace the opportunity to connect virtually, and you'll enjoy all the ways Blast supports them in engaging with text.
