    • The student can view the modules online, and click links (on most computers) to the context resources, rather than typing out the URLs.
  • Easy reference
    • Important chapters such as How to Read a Book and How to Write an Essay are more easily referred to in the print version.
    • Parents can use the print copy to easily answer questions, compare student papers with the models, and so forth.
  • Efficient study
    • Keep the Formats and Models chapter in the print book open while typing an essay so you can easily stay on track.
  • Printable rubrics and forms
    • The reproducible rubric and other forms can be printed off instead of photocopied.
  • Multiple users
    • If you have more than one student in your household using it at the same time,* each student will have a personal copy.
