You assign articles and quizzes or allow students to have free choice. The articles can be filtered by topic, literacy skills, CCSS, length and difficulty level. The vocabulary can also be assigned or done with free choice. It goes from 6th grade to college level in difficulty. Teachers can paste in text if they want vocab sets to be customized to what they’re teaching. There are also test prep sets. The great vocab features are spaced repetition (students see the same words multiple times over several weeks) and the different modes, so that all kinds of learners are engaged.
