Oct 18, 2010, 08:07 ET from Learning A-Z from ,Cambium Learning Group, Inc.

TUCSON, Ariz., Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Learning A-Z, a PreK-6 educational resource company and business unit of Cambium Learning Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: ABCD), announced today that it will be opening its celebrated reading websites, ReadingA-Z.com and Raz-Kids.com, with free trial offers and 10 chances to win a free classroom subscription to both sites. Winners will be selected randomly and everyone who signs up for a free trial will be eligible to win.

The October Open House (http://www.learninga-z.com/OctoberOpenHouse) runs from October 18 through October 31 and anyone can sign up for a free trial to either website — even if that person took a previous trial. October enhancements to ReadingA-Z.com and Raz-Kids.com include:


  • Ease of use — Improvements to the search tool now include national core standards, correlations to key basal series, and more
  • Wide Access — The addition of Kurzweil 3000™ format books, which are perfect for special education programs and struggling readers who are already making huge gains with Kurzweil's celebrated software
  • Currency — A complete update of our Oil Spill Theme Pack is now available — taking currency to the next level!


  • Online Assessment — Measure and track student progress through the new Online Running Record tool and reports
  • More Leveled Books — We've added more than 40 new titles, with an emphasis on the upper elementary grades, bringing each of our 27 levels up to at least 10 books per level
  • Even More Engaging — With new Teacher-to-Student messaging, students are motivated and the teacher-to-parent interaction expands

"We constantly upload fresh content and functionality to our websites, but this October is something special. We've added so many revolutionary features and enhancements to ReadingA-Z.com and Raz-Kids.com that we want every educator — and all their friends — to take free seven-day trials to both sites," says Bob Holl, publisher and founder of Learning A-Z. "We're so excited that we're giving away free licenses, just to encourage people to see what's new."

The October Open House also features the launch of a brand-new company website at http://www.learninga-z.com. Filled with helpful product information, videos, ways to connect and share via social media and news and information, the new site is a fresh expression of Learning A-Z's powerful brand story. "More than half of the districts in the U.S. and Canada already use resources from Learning A-Z, but most teachers don't know much about the company," says Holl. "Sure, the new LearningA-Z.com site tells our story. But that story has never really been about us at all — it's about the teachers and students we serve."
