Hip new study site for millennials adds teacher page

Shmoop is a new web site that “aims to make learning and writing more fun and relevant for students in the digital age.” Designed by Ph.D and master’s students from top universities such as Stanford, Berkeley, Harvard, and Yale—many of whom have taught at the college or high school level—Shmoop features deep analysis of topics in history and literature, sprinkled with a heavy dose of wry humor. Each analysis is accompanied by challenging study questions, trivia, and links to audio, video, photos, documents, and other supporting materials that can be found online. Now, Shmoop has added a teacher page that offers ideas for using the site in lectures, assignments, and classroom activities. Teachers also can remix Shmoop content and share their teaching materials with other educators. http://www.shmoop.com/teachers
