Overview

CourseReader: Comparative is a fully customizable online reader which provides access to hundreds of readings, audio, and video selections from multiple disciplines. This easy to use solution allows you to select exactly the content you need for your courses, and is loaded with convenient pedagogical features like highlighting, printing, note taking, and audio downloads. YOU have the freedom to assign individualized content at an affordable price. The CourseReader: Comparative is the perfect complement to any class.

  • Includes customizable and digital content for many courses across the curriculum so you can choose exactly which readings, articles, primary sources, and audio or video content to assign your students. No more searching for links to resources - everything is conveniently accessible and permission-cleared.
  • "Exciting! May be a solution to our ongoing debate: cost vs. use." Jan McCauley, Tyler Junior College
  • "I think this is one of the simplest and most straight-forward e-readers that I have seen. I'm particularly happy with what appears to be a stream-lined search feature, and I really like the additional suggestions feature for each document." Carey Roberts, Arkansas Tech
  • Access thousands of sources/readings/articles and audio and video sources through a partnership with Gale, all with permissions cleared, allowing you to tailor the content to fit your specific course needs.
  • Each selection includes a descriptive introduction to put it in context, and every selection is further supported by both critical-thinking and multiple-choice questions to reinforce key concepts.
  • Pedagogical features include highlighting, printing, note taking, downloadable MP3 audio files for each selection, and the option to assign due dates for each selection provide the support students need to succeed in the course.
  • You can choose to leave the study materials in place, or to further customize your reader by adding your own notes and highlighting to meet the needs of your classes and students.
  • Editor’s Choice selections pulled together by Cengage authors provide a set of sources that best align with your Wadsworth/Cengage text and are time-saving starting points for you to modify as you see fit.
  • For historical documents, a facsimile of the original document is displayed when available so students can see the source in its original form.
  • "I think that the project reader is a great idea. I like the idea of picking your own topics to be included. I know that everyone emphasizes different areas in their classes and being able to tailor the reader to your specific interests is a definite plus."Jeff Carlisle, Oklahoma City Community College
  • "CourseReader" has the potential to revolutionize the teaching of courses. Primary sources are so often underused in the classroom simply because the readers are pricey or inaccessible. "CourseReader" gives me the ability to customize my reader with sources that I think are relevant and provocative without adding in text that, because unused, become mere filler. Brilliant!"Kenna Lang Archer, Texas Tech University

"CourseReader has the potential to revolutionize the teaching of courses. Primary sources are so often underused in the classroom simply because the readers are pricey or inaccessible. CourseReader gives me the ability to customize my reader with sources that I think are relevant and provocative without adding in text that, because unused, become mere filler. Brilliant!" -- Kenna Lang Archer, Texas Tech University

"This is a more straightforward and easy way to access primary source documents than in class because it integrates an excerpt of the document’s background and some are in original text. It is very important to see the document in its original form rather than reiterated through the professor. I really like the options of taking your own notes on the side, highlighting, everything related to our course is on the site. It is affordable and helpful as a supplement." -- Vivian Wu, John Jay College
