Available within Connect, SmartBook actively tailors content to the individual student- The more a student interacts with SmartBook, the better it gets to know what they know and what they don’t know, helping students to maximize study time. By providing students with a safe place to make mistakes, showing them the areas they need to work on most, and by giving them consistent, personalized feedback at the exact moment they need it, SmartBook helps them to bridge their knowledge gaps and come to class prepared.Learn More
Responding to the need for currency in the American Government course, this new Connect assignment pairs fresh content on a rolling basis with auto-grade and critical thinking questions that allow instructors to assess student understanding of the important news of the day.Learn More
Applied Critical Thinking- Nicknamed ACT!

These interactive charts and maps are paired with auto-grade and critical thinking questions to enhance student understanding.Learn More
