BookNook Reading: Empowering Progress in Reading Skills

BookNook's high-impact tutoring solution includes a reading instructional model that is grounded in the Science of Reading research, ensuring a structured and evidence-based approach to building reading proficiency.

Student and Virtual Tutor

Comprehensive Reading Development

Students engage in three distinct lesson types on our online learning platform, each designed to enhance the five key components of reading. These lessons work in tandem to provide a well-rounded approach to developing reading skills, all while keeping students engaged through a broad range of instructional materials.

Foundational Reading Skills

Builds a solid base with phonological awareness and phonics for early learners.

Fluency + Comprehension

Deepens understanding through targeted lessons and exemplar reading examples.

Science of Reading Approach

Employs a research-based method that encompasses all five domains of reading.

BookNook Reading is ESSA Tier 1 Certified

In edtech, evidence-based results are the gold standard. BookNook's recent collaboration with Rocketship Schools provides just such evidence, showcasing how online tutoring can impact student success. This partnership has earned BookNook a Tier 1 classification in ESSA's Tiers of Evidence, indicating its strong efficacy backed by randomized controlled trials (RCT).


Cultural Competency & Diversity

Our library boasts a diverse collection of content-rich texts that includes both foundational skills and authentic literature, with both fiction and non-fiction texts. Curated with cultural competency, it features representation from over a dozen publishers of diverse, high-quality texts.




During comprehension lessons, students answer text-dependent questions during the reading. These stopping points spark group discussions and critical thinking, aligning with the lesson’s skills and standards. The questions foster active engagement and critical analysis. They encourage collaboration, help students determine the meaning of unknown words, and support them in backing their answers with evidence from the text.
