Abstract

This article describes the development and promise of the Read-with-Me eBooks (RWM), a free website that provides a curriculum for professional development focused on the use of digital storybooks to advance the literacy skills of at-risk preschool students. (RWM can be used by any teacher or parent: See readwithme.cast.org.)  The article offers a) a description of the RWM tool for emerging readers; b) a description of Universal Design for Learning, which is the foundation of the professional development curriculum; and c) a description of RWM implementation in preschools in the greater Boston area.
