Get to the heart of close reading

LaunchPad Solo for Literature, a set of online materials, helps beginning literature students learn and practice close reading and critical thinking skills in an interactive environment. Easy-to-use and easy-to-assign modules based on widely taught literary selections guide students through three common assignment types: responding to a reading, drawing connections between texts, and instructor-led collaborative close reading. In addition, select modules come with new listening to a reading activities, providing students with an audio version of the text and questions for reflecting.  Students and instructors also have access to a library of literary selections, instruction and exercises on the key elements of poetry, fiction, and drama, nearly 500 reading comprehension quizzes on commonly taught literary readings, and engaging videos by well-known authors on literary elements such as character, dialogue, and voice. Finally, LaunchPad Solo for Literature now includes a complete glossary of literary terms.  Get all our great resources and activities in one fully customizable space online; then use our tools with your own content.
