What Teachers Are Saying

Your curricula changed the way my students think about the world. They can see their country in France's peasants and the enslaved people of Saint Domingue. They can understand Black people's plights in the language of Emilioano Zapata. They have the tools to navigate the complexities of this moment. — Savannah, Connecticut
This is an amazing [digital] platform you have. I can't believe how intuitive and user friendly it is. The fact that you have a "student view" is priceless... My students always comment at the end of the year how the Choices units we have done are their favorite. — Charlie, Washington
The digital format works well. I am able to have my students read informative material without having to copy readings that could be lost, but I have the option to print if students prefer paper. I am able to control what students see. The option to unselect material is great if I am only using parts of a unit. — Betsy, Rhode Island
I have been able to easily assign Choices readings, and since the study guides open in Google Docs, it has been a seamless transition to use the online Choices resources. Many, many thanks for providing the e-access for us! — Pam, New Hampshire
