Gemma introduces The Open Door Series. This innovative program of original works by some of our most beloved modern writers was first designed with new readers in mind.

More than improving skills, readers can expand their world view, comparing their own experiences to situations profiled in colorful, grown-up stories.

To help teachers and adult learners use Open Doors to develop reading skills and the joy that comes with books Gemma is developing teaching guides and literacy resources for educators and learners alike. Please click any of the links below to download an Adobe 'pdf':

    *GemmaMedia’s Teaching Guides for The Open Door Series are free, downloadable Adobe™PDFs, available to teachers for class use. They may not be resold under any circumstance. If you would like to tell us your experience using them, or if you have ideas about teaching guides, please contact
