Originally known as "QuickReads: Word Pictures" and designed to supplement QuickReads print edition, the main goal of TextProject: Word Pictures is to help English Language Learners connect key words to concepts they may already know. For example, a student may already know the process in which plants grow from seeds but they may not have been introduced to these content vocabulary words: seeds, grow, and plants.
