Read Better Program Resources

In addition to Laubach and ProLiteracy materials, the resources below are ones we encourage you to consider using with your students.  When using online tools, slow down to confirm the student’s level of comfort with using a computer and navigating the Web.

  • TV411 – Video lessons that address reading, writing, and vocabulary.
  • Marshal Adult Education – Timed reading passages at multiple levels.  Provides prompts for discussion before the read. Printed stories include post-read questions.

These two resources require a library card and are available at: westchesterlibraries.org | Listen/Read/Watch.  Both work well on iPads/tablets.

  • Tumblebooks  – While the look and layout are clearly kid-focused, the content is engagingly presented and includes levels up to 6th grade in fiction and nonfiction.  Narrated text is highlighted.  Create a list of Favorites in advance of working with your student.
  • Comic Books Plus – Includes comics and graphic novels of all levels. Use the Browse option to identify different levels.
  • NovelistPlus – Use this resource to identify books that meet your students interest and level.  Identified titles can then be searched in the WLS catalog.

FirstFind.org/Skills Review/Reading includes resources that may be helpful for your students, but the level is generally 5th grade+
