Tar Heel Reader

Books for beginning readers of all ages

The Tar Heels Reader provides a collection of free, easy-to-read, and accessible books on a wide range of topics. Each book can be speech enabled and accessed using multiple interfaces.

For this project, you will write your own books using pictures from the huge collection at Flickr or pictures you upload.

  • Read several of the books so you get the idea of how these work

To create books you will need to register and create an account. You will need a secret invitation word to register. Contact the instructor and request the Tar Heel Reader invitation code.

Feel free to tell the secret invitation work to others but please don't post it somewhere that bad spammers will find it.

  • Register to create and account using the invitation code.
  • Read the instructions to writing books. There are several different types of books - enrichment, transitional and conventional
  • Create books about subjects of interest to you that are appropriate for college-age English Language Learners. Topics that are needed - math and science, working, studying, travel
