The Juice is a curriculum companion that helps students improve their reading comprehension, vocabulary, quantitative reasoning, and critical thinking by incorporating standards-based assessments into topical stories about current events.
Each story, quiz question, and vocabulary word is created at four different reading levels to facilitate differentiated learning, providing students with the same access to information regardless of their reading level.
10+ Tier 2 & 3 words and in-context definitions are intertwined into each day’s edition. Word of the Day stories explicitly teach new vocabulary every day.
Teachers observe and monitor student performance, generate reports, and document student improvement.
Swiftly assign articles to your class with Google Classroom; further integrations with Google Classroom, Canvas, Blackboard, Schoology, and Moodle are coming soon.

I think your articles are such a good mix of different things that really excite different kids. The headlines draw my kids and I see my them getting excited about reading. That is very difficult to do in those teenage years. I love that with The Juice.

I love that you guys do vocabulary every day. And that it works with some of our basic language standards like identifying a word in context. I love the way The Juice provides a word and the kids have to use it in context. I like the way The Juice encourages my kids to think logically. We also apply the lessons from The Juice to questions about social emotional learning. So we also discuss the impact on people's lives from the situation described in The Juice stories.

This can supplement and support any social studies or history program by focusing on real-time news stories. Connect news with historical events, learn about government processes, and encourage critical thinking and informed opinions and decision making.

The Juice is packed with great information to start our daily lessons. The articles are the perfect to help my students learn about current events - and at the reading level they need. The variety and extras generate real-life questions that extend learning beyond the classroom. It’s a great way to start our day!

I love, love, love The Juice. My students really like it. As a teacher, you present really good information. I love how you break down the grades levels. My students love the life hack, the bright side and the Extra Juice stuff.

We will definitely continue using The Juice for homeschooling to cover current events learning and critical thinking discussion. It has been an easy addition to our daily studies without adding any extra homeschool parent prep work from me. And, for the price, it’s a great online homeschooling program!
