We’re Supporting Reading Identity Development

Reading So Lit™ is a web-based reading identity exploration and assessment platform for grades preK-5. It leverages multimedia teaching modules and strengths-based student self-assessments and interactive reading explorations. This AI-enabled tool supports in-person or virtual learning and can be facilitated by classroom teachers and other school support staff. Reading So Lit has been implemented successfully during the school day and out-of-school time.

This innovative reading tool integrates Science of Reading research outlined in the Advanced Education Research and Development Fund’s 2022 concept paper, Reading Reimagined: A New Inclusive Research and Development Initiative,” which highlights evidence that improvements in non-academic elements of reading (i.e. reading identity, self-efficacy, engagement, motivation) accelerate reading achievement among underserved and neurodiverse learners.

Reading So Lit helps preK-5 students better understand and articulate their reading preferences, increasing out-of-school reading and accelerating reading achievement for young learners. This award-winning reading tool generates actionable data about students’ reading preferences that equips teachers and administrators to make student-driven decisions about content, instruction, and learning environments.
