…and a strict adherence to the Common Core. We are launching with a dozen courses…
These guys here:
…and we will be producing a half dozen or so more per month.
We've got year-long core courses… like junior-year English, a.k.a. American Lit…
…semester-long elective courses, like Introduction to Shakespeare…
…and adorable little three-week nano courses. Dr. Seuss, anyone?
Each course is chock full of all the goodies any teacher dreams of:

So what sets us apart?
Our 100% original content…
Our interactive nature…
The list goes on.
But above all, it's our love of teachers.

Doesn’t matter who or where you are, Shmoop will cater to you and your needs.

Public school in upstate New York? We gotcha covered.

Our aim is to aid educators—not to replace them. Information is global, yes. But teaching?
That's local. Shmoop recognizes that the world is changing

Yeah, electronic courses make some people nervous, but we’ll bet dollars to donuts
that, decades from now….
…none of these products will exist in their current form… but teachers will still be
