2. Build understanding

A validated Britannica article, available at four different reading levels, helps students explore the topic in depth. Auto-scored assessments follow each article to check for comprehension, vocabulary knowledge, and understanding.

3. Connect learning

A series of questions helps students connect the information presented in this lesson to their own learning, encouraging them to draw on their own experiences in their responses.
