Thank You Kindly for Making Shmoop the Fastest-Growing Education Website

Shmoop has the fastest-growing audience (unique monthly visitors to the website) of 24 leading education websites – over both the past 1-year period and the past 1-month period (source: compete.com, Dec. 1, 2009). We are humbled by the enthusiastic support that we receive from teachers and students who use Shmoop.

One of our mantras at Shmoop is a paraphrased quote from Robert Frost’s “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening“…

“we have miles to go before we sleep.”

So please keep your suggestions and requests coming and stay tuned for even more to love on Shmoop in 2010.

  1. Hi there and thanks for the question.

    Shmoop guides are currently geared toward middle school through college levels. That said, some topics on Shmoop may be appropriate for elementary students. We cover some Young Adult literature (e.g. A Wrinkle in Time, The Giver, The Call of the Wild) and we plan to add more YA books. Our Shmoop Biography and US History sections might also be helpful and interesting for Elementary instruction. We write in a voice that is designed to appeal to teens and college students, so please keep that in mind.

    We’d be happy to take your requests & suggestions for subjects, books, or topics that would be most important for Elementary teachers and students.

  2. I’d just like to thank you for being a major help for me learning civics, you make it very easy. I hope that Shmoop manages to become as popular a resource as Wikipedia, Curriki, and the like.
    Thanks again so much!
