It’s 3:00pm at the end of a long school day and the students are spent. They are done with bell- to-bell non-stop academics. It’s time to socialize, play together, and grow.

While educators around the world focus on accelerating learning for all, the pandemic continues to widen preexisting achievement gaps, hitting the most vulnerable students the hardest. Digital reading tools can help ensure that all learners can explore their full potential. Literacy solutions designed with the intention of addressing a diverse set of student needs make them better for everyone.1 All students deserve equitable opportunities to develop strong literacy skills for success in and beyond the classroom, and teachers deserve more support in helping their students reach these goals. Today, we’re pleased to announce the new Reading Coach experience in Microsoft Teams and updates to Reading Progress designed to help provide the best support for all learners.

Every February we celebrate Black History Month. A time to recognize the challenges faced by Black Americans throughout history and into today. It also serves as a reminder that Black history is American history.
While commemorating the outstanding legacy and strength of the Black community this month is important, commitment to incorporating Black history into your curriculum throughout the year is just as critical for creating a better future for all.
