Shmoop's College Readiness Engages Students Looking to Prepare for Next Step

  (January 24, 2012)

Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) January 24, 2012

Shmoop, a publisher of digital curriculum and test prep, has students backs. For teachers looking for a more efficient way to prepare students for the most important time of their lives, Shmoops college readiness guide covers a slew of topics thrown as gauntlets for students standardized tests. Shmoop delivers the material with the wit and panache of Ricky Gervais.

The college application process is a stressful, confusing and lonely one. Like The Beatles, Shmoop wants to hold students' hand. Cramming for standardized tests is an American rite slapping a few last minute extracurriculars to pad a resume is just sad. The Scholarship Scramble is not an historic board game, now a popular iPhone app. Students are in this frey support them with Shmoop and let them find the more in their lives lest they simply come down with a crippling case of senioritis, in which case theyll be in our prayers.

Four reasons why teachers should take a gander at this resource:

  •     97 out of 101 students agree that test prep stinks. That leaves only 5 who love it. And even they have trouble with simple arithmetic.
  •     Luckily, Shmoop Test Prep smells like roses: Shmoop speaks the language of high school students.
  •     Icons from bastions of literature, the film industry and the finest modern cartoons will reach classrooms as if test prep was created... by humans.
  •     Shmoop's proprietary "dashboard" and reporting systems give teachers immediate feedback on how Shmoop is being used in their school. Big Brother has nothing on Shmoop.

Most important reason: students can get a crash course on any of five commonly administered tests (SAT, PSAT, ACT, CAHSEE and ISEE), dive into the US History, English Literature and Biology SAT Subject Tests, prep en Español, and study for a ton of different AP Exams. Shmoop is constantly adding to the site, too, so if students dont get started now, theyll never catch up.

As a teacher, contacting Shmoop to find out about our great deals for schools and school districts is easy. Lets get the students ready for those all-important tests, so that they earn the life they want.
