KudosReading, an innovative platform to encourage reading at/above grade level
Foster a love of reading inside and outside your classroom using a new online platform. Kudosreading
is a fun, social, personalized learning platform that encourages reading and learning while showing efficacy against curriculum based standards for grades 4 & up.
It’s a new way for teachers to track independent reading, personalize book discussions and gauge reading comprehension.
How it Works
Personalize the curriculum and create book clubs by choosing a book for the entire class or divide into smaller reading groups
Assign questions based on state standards or create your own.
Assign a grade value and track student performance
Students participate in real-time book discussions and can use sentence starters to comment.
Students select books, rate and review them and recommend books to their friends.
Meaningful reading logs, reviews, and reading activities give students points to level up. They can then unlock new avatar items and badges.
Teachers monitor students’ interests by genre reports and track reading logs, holding them accountable.
Why it works
KudosReading is based on extensive published research and proven classroom methods for building an intrinsic love of reading. It’s an innovative platform that applies social contexts that kids love in gaming to motivate reading and learning at/above grade levels. Principles of gaming motivate students to read while tracking/reporting against curriculum standards help teachers monitor and hold them accountable for reading.
Teachers report increases in a number of books read across avid/reluctant readers as well as students reading level increases by 2-grade levels in classrooms using the platform.
