Unforgettable Articles and Stories

Every genre. Every issue.

The first step in a learning journey begins with a spark of curiosity. Our fascinating, important stories ignite a sense of wonder, whether it's in nonfiction, fiction, drama, poetry, or a surprising text pairing.

Powerful Differentiation Tools 

Because no two students learn the same way.

Every curious student deserves access to our stories, including struggling readers and English language learners. Differentiation tools like leveled articles, exciting audio versions (also leveled), vocabulary slideshows, and award-winning “Behind the Scenes” videos build background knowledge and support all kinds of learners.

Amazing Teacher Support 

Because we care as much as you do.

A 16-page Teacher's Guide offers step-by-step lesson plans, close-reading and critical-thinking questions for every story, and inspiring ideas for scaffolded lessons and project-based activities. A vast selection of online activities and quizzes focus on key ELA skills most critical to building analytical reading, writing, and test-taking confidence.
