ReadWorks, a research-based reading comprehension curriculum, recently received two national education awards. A nonprofit organization, ReadWorks offers its curriculum to educators for free.
ReadWorks was named the Best Reading/English/ELL Instructional Solution in the United States at the 2014 Software & Information Industry CODiE Awards, a prominent education technology awards program. Shortly afterward, the PreK-12 Learning Group of the Association of American Publishers honored ReadWorks with the REVERE Distinguished Achievement Award for Supplemental Resources, Reading and Language Arts. ReadWorks was the only nonprofit named as a finalist in the category.
David Ciulla, executive director of ReadWorks, noted that the company has received excellent feedback from teachers, principals, and administrators nationwide. The recent awards further confirm that ReadWorks helps teachers provide effective literacy instruction, he said. ReadWorks, which strives to improve students’ reading comprehension with a curriculum based on high-quality research, is used by more than 700,000 educators across the United States. The organization was founded in 2010 in response to a national reading comprehension crisis.
