Progress Report: Friday, June 5

Wow! We now have over 100 readers - 110 readers, to be exact - which have been reviewed for your use in the Latin area. You can browse the Latin area at Tar Heel Reader, or you can quickly scan the long list of readers here:

Among these you will find readers by 14 different authors - with Evan Millner leading the way at 43 readers. You will find poetry readers, proverb readers, and fable readers - along with all kinds of other content. You can find readers in different formats, such as bilingual readers, or "Repetite!" readers to encourage students to read out loud and get actively engaged. You can find readers with macrons, and also readers with accent marks to help in confident pronunciation.

To browse through the readers, you can click here to See a Random Tar Heel Latin Reader.

We also have a blog: Libelli Latini Latin Readers. You can find individual posts for each Tar Heel reader at the blog (that's a good way to see which readers are available in multiple formats), and you can use the search engine in the upper left-hand corner of the blog to look for titles or topics of interest.

You can also find tips at the blog for creating Tar Heel Readers, such as how to easily create bilingual versions of your readers, how to involve your students in creating readers, and more.

If you want to find out about new readers as they are reviewed and approved, you can sign up for an email subscription to this blog. Each day that new readers are reviewed and approved, you will receive an email with links to those readers and information about them.

If you have questions, please leave comments at the blog - your input and feedback will be very valuable as we keep developing this project and exploring new directions. If anyone would like to contribute in the authoring of this blog, writing about your experiences in using Tar Heel Reader, that would be great! Just contact me ( for an invitation to join the blog as an author.

Thanks to all the authors who have been contributing readers to the project. I hope this summer will be a great occasion for all kinds of Latin composition. If you have questions or comments, please let me know!
