About Student Access to Word Generation:

SERP also has created a separate Download Center for Students that does not require registration (due to privacy concerns).

Only PDFs of Individual Student Units are available there, but they can be easily downloaded to computers or tablets at home or at school.

Students with tablets may use PDF annotation apps such as Adobe Acrobat, PDF Expert, or Notability to mark up up the PDF documents. Many teachers have successfully made Word Generation paperless this way.

SERP is currently developing new Word Generation units for students that will be web-based and interactive. If you would like to help SERP by testing beta versions and offering feedback, please email designcenter@serpinstitute.org.
