Our Framework


Achieve 2 years of reading growth with ThinkCERCA.

Our Research-Based Approach

At the heart of every lesson is a flexible framework that teaches students how to construct a cohesive piece of writing. As students strengthen their writing skills, studies show they can achieve an average of two years of growth in a single school year.

Schools & Districts

Research shows the most important thing we can do to engage students in critical thinking is by teaching writing across subjects. When districts and schools unite around ThinkCERCA, every teacher has the power to be a literacy teacher.




Captivating an entire classroom of diverse learners is no easy task. With ThinkCERCA, teachers can auto-assign leveled reading and writing lessons within minutes. Plus, relevant topics keep all learners engaged alongside their peers- regardless of readiness levels.

Writing has to be intentionally taught and practiced in each classroom. ThinkCERCA has been an invaluable tool for us to align writing instruction and bring consistency to expectations and language when teaching and talking about writing.

In literacy, a product I like is ThinkCERCA. It meets kids where they are, again, personalized, and gets them engaged. It helps them with writing, and that’s an area we haven’t had nearly enough innovation. It challenges you with texts, forces you to identify things, and then looks at your own writing in terms of presenting a claim, evidence, and good reasoning. And again, that’s one that is showing good results for students.

ThinkCERCA helps us to differentiate for students in the classroom on their [readiness] level, but still, be working on the same standard. That’s pretty rich. I strongly feel that if we do well with our literacy skills, all our content performance will increase.
