    Dr. Madden-Dent: A college professor told me that she felt sorry for many international students who had little cultural literacy – “They hadn’t read anything, so any references I made fell flat.” So we developed readingportfolio.com I think international students studying in the US would find it a good, modern way to become part of US higher education culture. I will paste the link to a 1 minute summary on youtube. Basically, you prove you have read any one of 40 classic high school level books.

    Thanks! Matt
