Explore by Topic and Level

The Marshall Reading Program includes a range of topics important to adults, including work, money, parenting, health, and more. Using the mobile app, you can explore stories of interest to you by topic and be certain they are at the appropriate level.

Track the Stories You've Read

Beyond learning about new topics of interest, each story within the library provides opportunity to practice vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. As you explore topics, read the stories, and build skills, you can keep track of stories you've completed.

Developed by Adult Educators

Thank you to our Summer 2020 EdTech Maker Space Cohort, whose tireless dedication and commitment to literacy education for adults helped to create the 1,000+ mobile-friendly resources organized here to supplement the Reading Skills for Today's Adults stories.
