Shmoop Grows Again

Shmoop is a service that I've written about numerous times since its launch because I think it's a great service. More importantly, my students think it's a great service. Shmoop provides free online study guides for history, civics, and a variety of literature genres. For the student who is studying on the go, they can access the guides on their laptops, their iPhones, or their Kindles.

This week Shmoop added thirty-four more study guides. These new additions include 21 novels, 11 biographies, and two topics in US History study guides. As a teacher of US History I'm particularly enthused about the new US History study guides which are about the 1950's and Native American History.
