Multimedia Resources

At the top of the Resources tab, you’ll see any videos, slideshows, and audio features we’ve created for each article.

  • Our videos support our feature stories in all sorts of engaging and knowledge-building ways, by taking your students behind the scenes of the writing process or taking them on a journey back in time when a specific story is set.
  • The interactive slideshows bring new words to life with pictures, video clips, and audio pronunciation. At the end of the vocabulary slideshows, you’ll find quick and engaging activities to put that knowledge into practice right away.
  • We read our stories, poems, and articles aloud for your students—use these for listening comprehension, for scaffolding, or for engagement.
