The ThinkCERCA Platform

COMMON LANGUAGE

Teach literacy across subjects.

Traditional learning happens in silos, with English language arts, social studies, science and math teachers all speaking different languages to students. The CERCA Framework provides schools with a shared language for discussing and teaching literacy across the curriculum.

STANDARDS-ALIGNED WRITING PRACTICE

Turn students into great writers.

ThinkCERCA’s expert lessons include a scaffolded Argument Builder that supports students with evidence-based essay writing. This tool gives students the structure and space they need to develop their written thoughts clearly while allowing for more one-on-one time with teachers.

DIFFERENTIATED CONTENT LIBRARY

Save time searching for content.

Our lesson library includes standards-aligned, leveled texts and multimedia for English language arts, science and social studies. Differentiated for 10 levels of readiness for grades 3-12, this content is curated from authentic sources, including the New York Times and National Geographic.

CLOSE READING SUPPORT

Build up strong readers.

We help students develop the background knowledge required for great writing by engaging them in the process of close reading. Our lessons include highlighting and annotation tools, built-in audio, vocabulary support, summarizing practice, and automated assessments to build and gauge reading comprehension.

PAPERLESS GRADING

Give actionable feedback.

Through a combination of automated assessments and authentic teacher grading, ThinkCERCA keeps the lines of communication open with students. Our standards-aligned rubrics system standardizes the grading process while allowing teachers to write specific comments and assign a growth focus to students.
