5/12/2014 12:00:00 AM

Recognition in Reading and Language Arts Category Adds to Growing List of Accolades for Free, Research-Based, Common Core-Aligned Curriculum

 

NEW YORK – May 12, 2014 – The nonprofit ReadWorks is a finalist in the 2014 REVERE Awards, presented by the PreK-12 Learning Group of the Association of American Publishers (AAP). The research-based, proven, Common Core-aligned reading comprehension curriculum is honored in the Distinguished Achievement Awards, Supplemental Resources, Reading and Language Arts category.

 

“Our high-quality curriculum is providing hundreds of thousands of teachers with critical content for building student literacy and closing the reading comprehension gap,” said David Ciulla, executive director, ReadWorks. “It is gratifying to have our research-based curriculum recognized by the leading organization for educational publishing.”

 

This prestigious honor adds to the nonprofit organization’s growing list of recent accolades, including recognition as a finalist in the 2014 Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) CODiE Awards in the Best Reading/English/ELL Instructional Solution category and the 2014 EdTech Digest Cool Tool Awards.

 

ReadWorks provides research-based K-8 curriculum and guidance in reading comprehension directly to teachers online, for free, to be shared broadly. Its mission is to improve teacher effectiveness in teaching reading comprehension to increase student achievement and close the achievement gap.

 

ReadWorks is based on the highest quality research in reading comprehension and developed in concert with a team of Academic Advisors who are among the world’s leading researchers and practitioners in research-based reading instruction. ReadWorks currently provides hundreds of reading comprehension lessons and more than 2,000 authentic informational and literary passages and question sets, all aligned to the Common Core and state standards.

 

Formerly known as the AEP Awards program, the REVERE Awards were established by the Association of Educational Publishers (AEP) and continue a decades-long tradition of honoring excellence across all resources for preK-12 and adult learners, educators, and administrators. Hundreds of entries are submitted each year, including print materials, digital learning tools, professional development curricula, and a wide range of periodicals.

 

The entries are subject to a rigorous judging process consisting of three rounds of review by teachers and leading experts throughout the industry. Three key principles--quality content, age appropriateness, and innovation--drive the judging criteria and evaluation process.

 

The 2014 REVERE Award winners will be announced at a gala on June 4 in Washington, D.C.
