All students, regardless of their backgrounds or abilities, will see themselves reflected in our texts.

Agency Choice Into Lit WF157009

Agency and Choice

Students can choose how they want to extend their learning independently with Reader's Choice opportunities and the lesson resource links available in the Student Edition.

HMH Into Literature has newer pieces that competitors don't have. [This is] really critical to us as an ethnically diverse district. YA literature has exploded in readability and interest, and with authors that are so much more diverse, Into Literature has the most appeal for our kids.
