5 New Story Shares Features To Enhance Your Reading Experience
Our digital library of free stories was relaunched in May, with a new and improved design. With hundreds of teachers and thousands of students using the Story Shares platform in ~100 schools across 27 states in the U.S. alone, our stories are making a meaningful difference for teens reading below grade level now more than ever before.
As we continue to build out our digital literacy tool, we are focused on providing an intuitive and engaging experience for both our readers and those who support them. We have lots of cool new features coming soon. Take a tour of our library and check out some of the latest features with these quick videos.
Find and Filter
Before browsing through our collection of stories, you can use the find and filter option to narrow your search. Filter by reading level (Lexile, Fountas & Pinnell, or Grade Level Equivalent) and by age/interest level, or look up a specific title.
A pop up description of each story appears when you hover over each book cover. Scroll through our library and start your reading adventure. It’s like Netflix for books!
Word Look Up (Pop Up Dictionary)
Not sure what a word means? No problem! Selecting ‘Word Look up’ allows students to click on any word they don’t know and find the definition. Our dictionary definitions also include images!
With our handy bookmark tool you will never have to worry about forgetting your place in the story. Add a bookmark and pick up where you left off the next time you return to your reading adventure!
