Read With You Announces Curriculum Release
CHICAGO November 29, 2017 – Read With You has released its Fall 2017 curriculum set, available now on Amazon. Read With You is an international education company whose ESL division has chosen to create authentic texts of the highest quality for inclusion in their curriculum.
Over the past year, the team within the Read With You Center for Language Research and Development has created a unique set of books that will be used to teach literacy to native speakers along with many different language skills to non-native speakers of English. They are designed to be fun and encouraging stories that can stand along with no purpose beyond entertainment, as well. These books have been written in a way that achieves high-level literary content while meeting the linguistic demands of a strong language program. To meet this goal, Read With You collaborated with linguists, educators, authors, artists, and designers to develop valuable, engaging stories.
These books are authentic texts that are written by native speakers of English that
accurately demonstrate daily use of English. They can be used to teach readers literacy basics, such as how to blend sounds, as well as elements of advanced writing, such as use of metaphors and similes to convey meaning. Each book includes a short parents’ guide which provides the scaffolding for ESL students to understand the story more clearly. Native readers can use the parents’ guide to practice some language fundamentals in a fun and entertaining manner.
A team of illustrators have created engaging and intricate illustrations that not only depict the story but extend the meaning of the text even further. These illustrations support the linguistic features introduced by the text which provides opportunities to move the language focus from reception to practice and articulation through discussion.
Read With You presented the books at the Shanghai Book Fair earlier this month. The books enhanced the excitement of many who have waited with great anticipation to see the new products. The company will continue development of the series throughout 2018.
You can access the books on Amazon or read more about them on our website.

BEIJING October 11, 2017 -- Read With You has announced today that they will partner with The Beijing Hong Dan Dan Education and Culture Exchange Center to create audio materials for blind members of the Hong Dan Dan community.
The center is dedicated to edu-cultural communication and training for individuals with disabilities. Read With You shares in the value of creating culturally-driven communication. As such, Read With You has partnered with Hong Dan Dan to receive training on effective communication with blind community members. Additionally, Read With You met with the members of Hong Dan Dan to establish and learn how the company can best meet the community’s needs.

Teachers have donated their time to coach students in the creation of these materials. The company then invited students who qualified to donate their voice to this project. The materials include book audio along with descriptions of illustrations. Descriptions of visuals are approached as per culturally-driven training designed by community members.
Hong Dan Dan is a non-profit organization, established in 2003, that operates under the philosophy of “Teach a Man to Fish.” They work with blind individuals to equip and prepare themselves for future careers. They’ve dedicated their mission to boosting employment opportunities, providing social events, and further preparing disabled individuals to succeed in mainstream society.
