"Like Velcro for Students' Eyes"
E-Lit is built from the ground up to be irresistible to look at, captivating to read, and interesting to a wide variety of students. Each text is carefully designed to lead students through a "just-right" text right at their level, so they can flex their reading muscles just a little more each time you use our texts in class or for independent reading options. And with over 125 texts to choose from (and growing all the time), your students are bound to find something to read.
Every text is available in all four languages!
Frequently Asked Questions about E-Lit
What is E-Lit?
E-Lit is a digital library for World Language learners, built with TONS of visual scaffolding and leveled using our own World Language leveling system, designed by a former Reading Intervention, ESOL, French, and Spanish teacher. We began with only digital texts, but we are beginning to print full-color paperbacks so that you can add them to your classroom bookshelves, too!
Is this an app?
After the first year and a half of E-Lit, we have chosen to discontinue the app interface that we began this journey with in 2020. Even though we invested HUGE amounts of time and money into the app during 2020 and 2021, we were never able to get it to the "WOWZA" level of wow that you and your students deserve. So we are now offering E-Lit through a simpler (and, frankly, much more beautiful to look at) interface.
While many teachers were sad to see some of the app's functionality go, many others love the sleek interface of the e-readers. And we love the fact that we can now focus on what we do best: researching, writing, and illustrating engaging, easy-to-read texts for levels one through six!
An added bonus? The price went down, and there is a wider variety of options to fit your budget and needs.
How much does E-Lit cost?
Beginning in March of 2022, we will begin to offer access to the new E-Lit. Pricing is tentatively set as follows.
