"Storia School Edition and Core Clicks were created with teachers in mind. Both are easy to implement and fit right into a school's existing reading curriculum to help students meet the requirements of the Common Core," said Francie Alexander, Chief Academic Officer, Scholastic. "We took all of the valuable feedback on ereading in the classroom that teachers have shared with us, and reconfigured Storia with a concurrent use feature so groups of children can read the same title at the same time. For Core Clicks, we created a digital reading program that delivers instruction through content area subjects like science and social studies, and provides teachers with instructional support to build critical vocabulary and comprehension skills. Core Clicks is created by expert editors who develop high-interest nonfiction content in our award-winning classroom magazines, which are delivered to 13 million teacher subscribers each month."
Core Clicks and Storia School Edition are designed for school-wide subscriptions and are easily accessed from desktop and laptop computers, tablets and interactive whiteboards. Online teacher resources and support are available.
