blend·ed learn·ing

Blended learning is an approach to education that combines online educational materials and opportunities for interaction online with traditional place-based classroom methods. It requires the physical presence of both teacher and student, with some elements of student control over time, place, path, or pace.

Paxen Publishing offers the only truly blended program available from 0.0 through 12.9. Paxen Focus, our on-line learning resource paired with our Steck Vaughn book series covers grades 0.0-12.9 offers comprehensive instruction and practice.
