Looking for ways to support readers in building and expanding their vocabulary? Looking for engaging, age-appropriate reading for middle school students? Clusive™ is a free, flexible, adaptive, and customizable digital learning environment. Clusive helps learners build self-awareness by supporting them through discovering, choosing, and using preferences that help build their learning skills. Explore our Frequently Asked Questions or jump right in and use the tool today!
Through Clusive™, learners discover insights about their strengths, preferences, and challenges, and can use this personalized information to customize the learning experience. Adjust font style, line height, and letter spacing to suit the topic or situation. Choose a dark background color, smaller text size, or turn on the built-in glossary feature. The customization possibilities are endless.
But preferences aren't static in Clusive. The tool adapts over time. Clusive makes recommendations and adjustments based on activity and choices learners make. And the more they use Clusive, the better the recommendations become.
Developed with the principles of Universal Design for Learning, Clusive supports learners by providing options, making clear, data-based suggestions, and giving learners ultimate control over their learning experience.
Clusive™ has a library full of vocabulary-rich, leveled versions of high-interest texts for middle school students, including:
- Materials from SERP’s Word Generation academic language development series
- Historical biographies from the Library of Congress’ Meet Amazing Americans series
- Texts from Tar Heel Reader
- Articles from SERP’s STARI curriculum
- Full-length public domain books
Our library is constantly expanding, so check back often for the latest resources.
