Welcome to ss publishing
Smart and Smarter Publishing is a small publishing company located in Washington state.Our focus in on quality history and geography curriculum, along with young adult novels since 1997.
Most recently, we've created Washington Interactive. Building on our previous Washington state geography/history curriculum, the new version, written for upper elementary and middle school, is dynamic, engaging, and most importantly, tied directly to the common core state standards.

Because Interactive Washington is written by teachers in Washington state, we have a better understanding of the needs of our students. On top of that, we also recognize that two major initiatives have shifted the way we approach teaching.The first is CCSS (Common Core State Standards). The rigor and complexity of text, along with the cognitive demand students will be required to demonstrate, is a game changer. We literally rewrote almost all of Washington Interactive to reflect this shift.More info
Every article, practice, and importantly, assessment is aligned to what students will be required to show on the test. We accomplished this by analyzing the item specifications and standards in detail, not only in social studies, but in the reading and writing targets as well.
The second shift is the move to the new Washington state teacher evaluation. We wrote the curriculum to make showing student growth easy with pre and posttests and formative assessments along the way to help.More info
