Adding Encyclopédie Découverte in print to our online French offering ensures our references are the go-to resource in the format that works best for educators and students.
Chicago (PRWEB) December 12, 2008
With the introduction of the World Book Encyclopédie Découverte in print, students studying French now have access to both a comprehensive French-language encyclopedia in print as well as an the online Encyclopédie Découverte introduced earlier this year.
Written at a reading level appropriate for younger students who are native French speakers and readers, Encyclopédie Découverte also offers a useful resource for older students and adults for whom French is a second language.
The 15-volume, 2,600-page reference offers richly illustrated articles to help visual learners understand the content. The thousands of articles were selected with the guidance of educators, including teachers, librarians, and readability specialists. Content also is correlated to curriculum standards to support classroom use.
"Expanding our reference resources for special markets is a priority for World Book," said Patti Ginnis, chief marketing officer for World Book. "Adding Encyclopédie Découverte in print to our online French offering ensures our references are the go-to resource in the format that works best for educators and students."
