ReadAbout is a reading software program for elementary level students, sponsored by the book and educational material company Scholastic. The program provides nonfiction reading selections for students at various levels of reading ability. Each ReadAbout unit contains a text for students and a series of related comprehension questions.
ReadAloud units come in five different variations. These include a base text designed for students who are reading on-level for their grade, an easier text to help students who are reading below level increase their skills, and a more difficult text to challenge students who are reading above grade level. Each unit also has an additional text for ESL speakers and one for special needs students.
