UDL Editions has interactive stories for students in grades 5-12 that provide scaffolding for reading comprehension strategies. Within each short story are links to definitions and illustrations for key vocabulary words. Each story is also accompanied by reading strategies and examples, such as prediction, summarization, questions, and visualization. There are also discussions of the narrative elements and literary devices of the author’s craft. Finally, there are links to background resources about the subject matter of each story that can be used for further research or clarification.
