“It is not enough to ‘comprehend’ a text or to be able to summarize it or answer basic questions about it. A close reader will understand how the author has powerfully communicated the ideas and where that power emanates from.”

Discover lost texts.

In a world where machines control your access to information, there is power in the writings from the past. As students navigate through The Last Readers they encounter classic literary and informational texts and are guided through the careful process of breaking them down and answering text-dependent questions.

Join the rebellion.

It’s 3017 and the machines have taken over. Humans are fed information by the ruling robots and access to books and newspapers has been cut off. But a resistance group has started. And they're looking for new recruits to battle the machine's propaganda and convince those around them to fight back.
