The heart of Book Punch is a powerful online engine that scaffolds the writing and thinking processes. This enables students to connect to books more personally and think critically about what they have read.

Book Punch is derived from Merit's popular Paragraph Punch and Essay Punch products, which have received numerous awards and accolades for excellence in teaching students to write effectively.

Marshall University researchers have shown that students using Merit, including the Punch programs, show improvements in reading and writing skills.

The work of leading contemporary educators has also influenced Book Punch. Theories of Keene & Zimmerman, Fountas & Pinnell, Langer, and Graham are incorporated into the program. A detailed research-basis for Book Punch is included in the program manual.
