Two Major Learning Center Updates Have Been Released! 

Update 1: Digital Instructor's Editions Are Here! 



As a convenience to educators, we have added digital Instructor's Editions of our latest edition textbooks to the Learning Center. To access them, click the Materials tab and select eBooks. 





Instructor's Editions are visible to instructors only. They cannot be added to class assignments or shared with students. To locate them, enter the title of the text you wish to see in the search field on the eBooks page. You can also enter the word instructor in the search field to see a full list of available Instructor's Editions. 





Update 2: English Plus Is Live. Here's What's Included:


NEW Three Acclaimed Ebooks

English Plus includes our newly expanded writing text, Clear Thinking and Writing, 2/e. In addition, it contains both of our acclaimed grammar titles: English Essentials and English Essentials, Short Version, 2/e. These three ebooks, accessed inside the Learning Center, include bookmarking, highlighting, markup, and note-taking capabilities. Available now!


NEW Clear Thinking Tests

Twenty-five progressive online tests on the basics of clear and logical thinking are included with this subscription to English Plus. These tests—250 point-support items in all—gradually increase in difficulty, enabling students to systematically strengthen their logical thinking skills.



NEW Bonus Readings

Five bonus reading selections, each with comprehension and discussion questions and writing assignments, are included with English Plus. In addition, English Plus will feature a regularly updated collection of new readings that will address topics of concern in our ever-changing world.




NEW Instructional Video

English Plus comes with an instructional video that introduces students to the idea of making and supporting a point. Crafted to be hands-on, practical, and entertaining for middle school, high school, and college audiences, the video will be a valuable resource for students working to learn the basics of critical thinking.

Grammar Skills Assessments

Two tests of students’ written English language skills have just joined our other assessments. Easy to administer and directly aligned with the skills in English Plus, these tests can guide individual and class instruction. And our transparent, teacher-friendly score reports reveal exactly which items challenged students and which ones they’ve mastered.

English Essentials Print / Digital Items

By request, hundreds of activities from Part One and Part Two of English Essentials have been added to English Plus. These items join our existing exercises and tests to give educators the ability to assign and grade all material electronically.



English Essentials Digital Exclusives

English Plus comes with digital bonus items to accompany both editions of English Essentials. These exclusively digital resources include four exercises and two tests for key skill chapters in our grammar texts. They serve to deepen and reinforce each skill presented in the text or ebooks. Together with the book-based items, students will have ample practice with each skill.
