We’ve adapted our critical thinking software to help K-12 teachers meet the Common Core Standards for reading and writing.  If you are a K-12 teacher, find out how to get started creating your own conversations  in just minutes: http://teachers.athenabridge.com

Our software is free for teachers in grades 6-12.  Pricing for colleges and universities is here.

AthenaBridge Software Helps with these Reading Standards:

  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.R.1 Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.

  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.R.4 Interpret words and phrases as they are used in a text, including determining technical, connotative, and figurative meanings, and analyze how specific word choices shape meaning or tone.
