At ThinkCERCA, we're passionate about personalized literacy. And with good reason. When students engage in reading, writing, and argumentation across subjects, they are more likely to become college- and career-ready.
Just ask Fayette County Schools, a suburban district south of Atlanta. Within one year of implementing personalized literacy across its five middle schools, student saw dramatic gains on the Georgia Milestones.
To help determine how your school or district can strengthen its approach to personalized literacy, we've created this Blended Literacy Scorecard. This 5-minute quiz will help you identify where you're succeeding as well as areas of improvement. Once we've generated your score, we'll share quick tips and resources for taking your blended literacy program to the next level.
