Follett has announced it has begun selling ThinkCERCA, an award-winning online literacy platform that empowers teachers to personalize critical reading, writing and thinking instruction.
ThinkCERCA includes curriculum for grades 4-12 across English language arts, science, social studies, and mathematics. The CERCA framework, the core of the ThinkCERCA platform, provides consistent language and tools for teaching literacy and critical writing across the curriculum. ThinkCERCA is designed to bolster academic achievement and readiness for common state and college-readiness assessments, such as the ACT and SAT, in as few as six weeks.
ThinkCERCA has received recognition from luminaries across the technology space for its ability to empower teachers and develop the critical thinking and academic writing skills necessary for students to succeed in college, career and life. Its product has been recognized by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Chicago Innovation Awards, and EdSurge for its ability to boost student learning across the curriculum.
Designed by a team of leading educators and technology entrepreneurs, ThinkCERCA’s approach is supported by decades of research from University of Chicago showing achievement through cross-curricular reading, writing, and debate leads to increased college and career readiness.
In March 2015, Follett Corporation announced it would make a $3.2 million investment in ThinkCERCA from the Follett Knowledge Fund, a venture capital fund for new technologies with the potential to improve the way educational content is delivered and consumed.
