What Teachers Are Saying

Digital Editions are excellent resources. The curriculum pushes my students to think outside their normal frame of reference and engages them to go beyond and find more about a topic, which builds academic rigor and stamina. — Ernie Lee, 2016 Georgia Teacher of the Year
The material is set up in a way that is engaging, and the direct quotes and short videos are great. We LOVE the debates! They are always the best part of the year per student feedback. And when I have a question, I always get an immediate answer. — Susan, Digital Editions User
I like that I can select which parts to show students. The embedded videos and images are nice too. These are great resources and they show a variety of perspectives. — Stephanie, Digital Editions User
I loved the recent Teaching with the News lesson! I was struggling with a way to explain the really complex situation and realized you had a lesson. It became a really great way to introduce some concepts. — Sara, Connecticut
