A closer look at our reading platform

Close Reading

The built-in highlighter, shapes tool, and drawing brush encourage close reading, allowing students to identify evidence, make connections, and mark-up key photos and illustrations in ways not possible with shared physical texts or e-book subscriptions.

Teachers can view students’ comments and respond in the text, providing a quick formative assessment opportunity.

Reading out loud

On our reading platform, students can record themselves reading books out loud, then listen to themselves and self-assess both their miscues and their strengths as readers. Students can also compare their recordings to the natural-voice audio narration to improve pronunciation, especially with words they haven’t seen before.

Teachers can listen to student recordings to get deeper insights into their students’ reading progress.

How our reading platform increases access and engagement



Educational attainment

Researchers found that kids with access to 500 books at home can be expected to graduate high school. Children with minimal access to books at home often don’t make it past ninth grade.



Engaged readers

Engaged readers spend 500% more time reading than disengaged readers. To be engaged readers, students need to spend time reading both at school and outside of the school day.



Reading habits and academic achievement

Students who read 15 minutes or more per day achieve accelerated reading gains, while students who read less than 15 minutes per day may be at risk of falling behind their peers.



Reading trends by age

Nearly half of students read for less than 15 minutes a day. Students read most in elementary school, but by the end of high school the typical student spends just 8 minutes per day reading books.
