Evaluation

SHMOOP gave us online access to their extencive list of available courses to review. These courses are set up in an online curriculum format that requires little teacher involvement outside of assisting students through the online content. The courses are easy to navigate and assignments are graded by the teacher in the interface.

Each lesson and unit has Core Standards referenced at the bottom, but we felt that the language in the lessons and their intreptation of the standards were not always well aligned (such as using "persuasion" instead of "argumentative" writing). The lessons incorporate a variety of media in video and audio files, but we had trouble loading and viewing them in our review. Many of the smaller reading materials were lnks to open source readings, but the literature novels will need to be purchased separately, making it much more expensive than the initial $25 per student/course.

There is no way for teachers to modify the course content, but it is well-suited for individual/self-pa
