CHICAGO, Sept. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Hundreds of Oakland middle school students received free access to ThinkCERCA's literacy curriculum and personalized learning platform through a donation in partnership with Bryan Tsiliacos's 30 Acts of Kindness Before 30.
The student licenses were part of an essential items supply kit delivered to five Oakland schools. ThinkCERCA was one of 18 company sponsors who donated over $12,000 worth of supplies for Tsiliacos's second act of kindness. His first focused on the Bay Area firefighter community.
Our responsibility to teach critical thinking and writing across subjects and build instructional capacity is paramount.
'The recent news about pandemic learning loss furthered what many educational leaders and communities already knew. Our responsibility to teach critical thinking and writing across subjects and build instructional capacity is paramount. We are proud to have a tool that achieves this and gives hours back to teachers so they have more 1:1 time with students and can deliver results in reading and writing,' said Eileen Murphy, ThinkCERCA's Founder and CEO.
Each of the 150 classroom supply kits included pencils, paper, tissue, markers, and other needed items that many teachers pay for personally each year.
Tsiliacos said, 'Getting the support of a leading education company like ThinkCERCA helped bring this initiative to life. They graciously donated access to their innovative literacy courseware that helps students become strong critical thinkers. It was a great addition to the supply kits, and the teachers were very appreciative!'
