Excellent way to learn

I have used in a number of my classrooms. I simply access the site through my computer or phone as I don’t have the app. Students have a love/hate relationship with the site because they realize they are learning words with “real life” texts and there is no way to cheat.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (7 ):

Although learning new vocabulary words may not appeal to teens, playing a game will. turns learning vocabulary into a game for teens by providing them with opportunities to earn points and unlock achievements as they improve their skills. The game lacks some of the animations and sound effects that will reel most teens in, but, if they give it a shot, they may find it to be surprisingly addicting. Instead of answering the same type of question about the same words over and over again, teens will discover different question types and words appearing in a variety of contexts. Specialized word lists also allow teens to practice words they'll find in specific books, historical documents, and academic subjects or on SAT preps. As they play, they'll see which words they master and which need more work, providing some focus for their practice.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
