Search the Catalog
If you have a particular title, author, publisher, or theme in mind, you can use our search box to instantly see if our Catalog has what you're looking for!
High-interest, low reading level text: Hi-lo texts are great for getting a reader's attention at a reading level that is accessible to them. Our Catalog includes a variety of texts that we have identified and tagged as hi-lo. Teachers can easily search for these texts by typing “high, low, hi-lo, hi” in the search box.
Culturally relevant text: With classrooms becoming more diverse and the impact texts have on students, it has become important for teachers to integrate culturally relevant texts. These texts can be found in the Actively Learn catalog by searching for key terms “culturally, relevant, culturally-relevant” in the search box.
When you select a text in our Catalog, you’ll see a pop-up with the author, publisher, category, description, Lexile score, number of pages, an image, and price of the rental text. You will see options to preview the featured assignment, select the assignment, or to select the text without any questions, notes, or media.
