Fantastic Literacy and Language Resource: Tarheel Reader
Two of my favorite bloggers (Ruth Morgan at Chapel Hill Snippets and Adeline’s Mom at We Can Do All Things) have written about this site recently and I wanted to make sure all of you knew about it too!
Tar Heel Reader – a result of a collaboration between Center for Literacy and Disability Studies and the department of Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill – is a collection of free, easy-to-read, and accessible books on a wide range of topics. The books may be downloaded as slide shows in PowerPoint, Impress, or Flash format. Each book can be speech enabled and accessed using multiple interfaces, including touch screens
FYI: Ruth Morgan of Chapel Hill Snippets creates a great number of materials based on books from this site. Go to her website and type “Tarheel Reader” in search box on her blog to find all the great activities she has created from these free books
