National Geographic Learning (NGL), part of Cengage Learning, has announced a series of significant new adoptions of its Reach for Reading program for the 2014-2015 school year in 14 school districts across Arizona, Oregon and Massachusetts.

The Reach for Reading program exposes students to reading with content and imagery from National Geographic’s vast library of multimedia and narratives from world-renowned explorers – leading to more engaging learning experiences. The program was designed to instill the passion for reading in all content areas, inspiring students through authentic multi-cultural literature, amazing visuals and compelling topics that bring learning to life. Reach for Reading includes a balance of print and digital resources, including the award-winning myNGconnect, to maximize learning and is flexible to meet the varying needs of every student.

The Reach for Reading program was built around Common Core State Standards, which were implemented as a way to provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students across the country are expected to learn and were designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that young people need for success in college and careers. Reach for Reading goes above and beyond simple compliance with these standards and thoroughly applies the shifts of the Common Core to the program.
