More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 8+.

This reading comprehension app has twenty stories about social studies.

Each story has about 500-800 words. Each story introduces new vocabulary and concepts, and is followed by a set of exercises that measure the student's comprehension. The exercises include multiple choice questions, true/false questions and matching exercises that ask the student to match words or concepts with their definition.

This app allows unlimited individual users, and provides detailed reports on each student's progress.

There are two modes: Practice Mode and Test Mode. In practice mode, the student is given visual and audio feedback as they answer each question.

You can listen to the passage, question, and answer. By tapping the text you want to hear, the app reads aloud either the entire passage or just one word from it, depending on what you select.

In addition to teaching social studies, this app helps develop reading, vocabulary and comprehension skills.
