Full-length trade books for every student promote authentic literacy experiences.

ReadyGEN is an integrated and well-balanced approach to reading and writing instruction. Unlike a traditional core basal offering, ReadyGEN was intentionally designed to provide students and teachers with the tools necessary to meet the Common Core instructional shifts; Authentic, rigorous Text Sets build knowledge around unit themes that actively engage students, and a complete array of print and digital resources that provide you with the daily support you need while offering the flexibility you desire.
