Publishing readers is big business, as the number of catalogues produced annually by global publishers testifies.
Here are a few reasons why publishers and edtech companies license our Inclusive Readers:
Publishers and edtech companies have more conceptual freedom when developing readers themselves, or when working with a reader developer like Westchester. They can decide on content: themes, settings, narration style, characters, and fiction or non-fiction.
Publishers and edtech companies may decide to brand themselves as a provider of certain types of readers. There are a wide range of pathways that target solely or a combination of academic level, ethnicity, socio-economic class, age group, country specific and regional interests.
Licensee publishers and edtech companies may choose to exclusively publish our Inclusive Readers as single pieces or bundles that are funny, serious, contemporary, historical, biographical, factual or fantastic in nature.
Related to branding, licensee publishers and edtech companies can make important content selection choices to reflect their own identity and perceived target markets. They can decide whether or not to include audio, glossaries, dictionaries, worksheets, tests, teacher’s notes, or other ancillaries as separate or included components.
Multiple titles can be moderately adapted to suit a number of target market needs:
- ESL, ELT, ELA– English language titles can be adapted for three focus areas.
- Language type– titles can be written in standard American English and/or British English.
- Bilingual education– titles can be transformed into bilingual readers.
- Translations– titles can be translated into foreign languages.
- Big books – title can be converted to big books for very young learners (reception/pre-K, early primary).
