Blast off in 2016!

Posted by Diane Cadogan on January 05, 2016 |

There is an exciting new development in our Blasts library-- beginning this week, you’ll find a brand new Blast every morning when you log into your StudySync account. This means a new short read/write assignment every day for students to research and express their opinions via StudySync’s mediated, online social network. Utilizing the popular Twitter-like short answer format, students will respond to engaging topics with peers and all the while build vital critical thinking, writing, and research skills. The format is the same, but now there will be a specific thematic focus for each day of the week.
