Q. Is there an online source to help my middle school student do better in school?
The Library provides access to an excellent online collection of study guides called "Learning Express Library" that includes sample prep tests for middle school curriculum. This source can be accessed through the Library's web page (hmcpl.org), selecting "Online Resources," and then choosing "Learning Express." You will need to ask a library staff member to create an account with Learning Express by entering your full library card number and creating a pin number. Once you've registered at the Library, you will be able to access the resource at home through the Library's web site. After login, select "Middle School." You will then have access to a number of E-Tests and E-Courses and can save them in "My Center" in order to retake and review them. There are dozens of sample tests on math skills improvement, social studies skills improvement and writing skills improvement, all geared toward the middle schooler. A perfect source for middle school students wishing to improve their grades. Good too for adults wishing to review basic coursework at that level.
