As you know, writing and critical thinking skills are a key part of new standards. As a result, districts are searching for tools that can help teachers effectively impart these skills to their students.
At Yreka High School in Northern California, Carla Truttman could see that her social studies students were having trouble evaluating data, synthesizing material, and pulling information from credible sources and citing them correctly.
She turned to Citelighter, and the results speak for themselves.
Her students now have the essential critical reading, writing, and thinking skills necessary to meet the new standards. Plus, they know how to find and use reliable primary sources for research. As a result, Carla reports her students are able to finish twice as many writing assignments with a level of quality that was unthinkable before Citelighter.
