Evaluating a Reader’s Reading Data with Read2Think
If a reader opts into our programming, he or she can use Read2Think for free. Read2Think saves teachers and parents time on trying to figure out how their children read. We use data to help you understand your reader’s oral reading. We provide inclusive assessments to measure their interest level. Sign up for a trial without opting into our programs as well.
Pennez is a place for parents, educators, and executive directors to discover resources on helping children to read. We exist to reduce the illiteracy gap and provide programs and services that are inclusive to a child’s literacy experience. Our platform connects you with resources about literacy and features wordsmiths of color. Our goal is to not only change the narrative of recognizing diversity within reading. We also hope to bring an equal playing field for Black and Brown youth within our education system.
