Knowledge Adventure, provider of multimedia web materials, offers Knowledge Adventure Books by You. The company says the program combines proven elements such as social sharing, high-interest texts, collaboration, strategic prompts, vocabulary and context, real-world experiences, and student choice to create a software program that will improve reading outcomes and reward and encourage all types of readers. The make-your-own-book software for students in grades 3-4 is guided by actor and author John Lithgow in video segments. Lithgow takes students through each segment of the book-making process, from writing, to cover, to design. Lithgow also presents questions and strategies that can help produce more engaged readers, according to the company. To build vocabulary, challenging words are introduced and defined in context, and students can edit the book further, adding illustrations, or importing their own digital photos, gaining a deeper understanding of the descriptions and themes of the book. For an additional fee, students can also even “publish” a professionally printed and bound book to share with classmates, friends, and family.
