The sheer volume of information available to students today is staggering - human knowledge almost doubles every 12 months. Students have to know how to evaluate, comprehend, and synthesize this information effectively in order to build new knowledge of their own. How can we help them learn to become purposeful readers, analytical thinkers, and effective communicators?
Active Reading and Writing Skills are the Key!
Students MUST have well developed active reading and writing skills to be successful, in school and in life.
Imagine Easy Academy' standards-aligned supplemental content is specifically designed to help students become purposeful readers, analytical thinkers, and effective communicators, by developing the informational reading and writing skills students need to be successful in school, college, and career.

How does Academy support the development of active reading and writing skills?
Learning happens when students read, comprehend, evaluate, and synthesize text to build new knowledge.
POWERFUL learning happens when students can express what they’ve learned through writing, the most active form of reading. Academy helps students develop these skills with instruction that includes:
