Students will need to be able to navigate the web, discern important and relevant information, research, prepare and present all using the technology in the classrooms.

Found Shmoop?

ToT-Shmoop

 

Shmoop online resources look very engaging for Students and Teachers alike!

I was looking for some online resources for math and science and ran across SHMOOP!. This Shmoop site has so much to offer when it comes to resources for your students.

Shmoop will make you a better lover (of literature, history, life). See many sides to the argument. Find your writing groove. Understand how lit and history are relevant today. We want to show your brain a good time. Don’t worry… we’ll have it back home at a reasonable hour.

With Student Learning Guides like: Literature, Bible, Poetry, Shakespeare  Mythology, Bestsellers  Dr. Seuss, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Calculus, Biology, & US History, you will also find resources like: DMV, SAT, ACT, AP Exams, En Espanol and Videos.

They offer online Teacher Resources (for a small fee ~$5/guide) as well as Test Prep & College Readiness (also for fee help.)

Our Mission

Shmoop means “move something forward a little bit.” The phrase reflects our company mission, which is to shine a little light into the dark corners of students’ minds. We believe that great and difficult concepts can be explained clearly, succinctly, and with a compelling storyline. In “telling the tale” behind seemingly intangible subjects, we humanize them and make them accessible to everyone.

Sincerely,
The Shmoop Team
