Virtual PD - Fun Ways to Use Tar Heel Reader

The Tar Heel Reader is one of the resources from the TxCAN October Guidance. The Tar Heel Reader is a collection of free, easy-to-read, and accessible books on a wide range of topics. The site, which was created by Karen Erickson of the Center for Literacy and Disability Studies, was created to confront illiteracy among under-served populations, especially those with disabilities that make it difficult to learn to read using traditional books and learning methods.

Each book can be speech-enabled. Students and teachers can browse books over thousands of books by topic or create their own book. You may write your own books using pictures from the huge collection at Flickr or pictures you upload. While the students are working on their books they are saved as drafts.  

Who can use Tar Heel Reader? (1) Beginning Readers (2) Struggling Readers (3) English Language Learners (4) Pre-K through 12th Graders...basically…EVERYONE!
