Awards & Reviews:

"...the digital shift and the expanding needs and expectations of students and educators means companies like World Book have to hustle and deliver on the details of usability to stay relevant. Thankfully, with resources like Social Studies Power, a sort of online textbook/curriculum support, they appear up to the challenge....For those looking to make the leap, this is a resource that might allow schools to say buh-bye to the text."
