Standards-aligned, curated content sets of Britannica’s best-in-class resources allow teachers to meet expanding requirements while continuing to teach core subject-area content.
Educators can support the unique learning needs of each student, including advanced readers, struggling readers, and ELL students, through multilevel articles, content groupings, and reading support tools such as read-aloud functionality, double click dictionaries, and article translations available in over 80 languages.
