BookNook is used daily on a variety of devices in schools, summer programs, after school, and other educational environments to improve students’ reading ability.
With almost no training, any adult or near peer can help students increase their reading skill with BookNook.
Following research-based standards, we present a student with a passage of text. By listening to a student read for just 15 minutes and recording some simple observations, even someone with no experience teaching reading can get an accurate read on where the student is in his or her development.
BookNook has developed adaptive curriculum that uses student leveling and performance data to facilitate one-on-one and small group instruction for students who having a hard time with reading, generally in Tier II and Tier III. Text and curriculum are seamlessly woven together and easy for anyone to sit down and use with no preparation, whether a teacher, paraprofessional, or even a volunteer.
