How to Use CurricuLit

Whether you are an educator or a student, a parent or an avid reader, is designed to facilitate access to electronic versions of the public domain works of almost every author included in the public school curriculum. We have researched and assembled full bibliographies of all of the authors on current curricular lists and cataloged direct links to each title available online from certified academic, professional and scholarly Web sites around the world.

Most of the titles in our database are available in a variety of formats on their respective hosting sites, whether in HTML or as PDF files that can be downloaded and stored.

• Differentiate instruction as deemed necessary to accommodate any student’s reading level within a given classroom, channel individual interests, etc.

Students can then access these materials anywhere, at any time and on any electronic device with Internet access.
