World Book Discover

for Differentiated Instruction

Discover offers foundational content on a variety of topics in a format that is perfect for differentiation. Our engaging reference resources are ideal for students reading below grade level because of language or learning difficulties, with content and tools specifically developed for these students.


Discover features two reading levels for each article: a simplified article (from our World Book Discover encyclopedia) and a detailed article. Users can easily toggle between the two reading levels with the click of a button!

Built in tools for accommodation make content accessible to a variety of learning styles.

In addition, Discover helps these learners navigate the research process by providing tutorials for how to find, evaluate, and organise information as well as cite sources.

  • The home page features changing content designed to spark inquiry such as "Did You Know?"" and "Today in History" which offer fun facts about interesting topics.
  • Make learning fun with hundreds of educational games & awards. Users can earn awards or compete to beat their own best score!
