Turn invisible struggles into noticeable successes

Often struggling with ingrained habits of nonengagement, learned passivity, and invisibility in school, many of the nation’s nearly five million English learners are long-term English learners who require more than explicit instruction to succeed. These students need to be inspired to make real-life connections to the texts they’re reading. English 3D is designed specifically to meet these students’ needs with peer interaction, exciting text, and regular assessment opportunities.
