Clusive is a free, flexible, adaptive, and customizable digital learning environment. Students can use Clusive to read assigned or free-choice books and articles, build their own personal library, and take advantage of Clusive’s growing public library. Clusive’s goal is to help learners build self-awareness through discovering, choosing, and using preferences that help build learning skills. Need more information? Listen to what students like about Clusive, explore our Frequently Asked Questions, or jump right in and use the tool today!
Clusive helps readers discover insights about their strengths, preferences, and challenges, allowing them to use this information to personalize their learning experiences. Clusive adapts with learners to make recommendations and adjustments based on their activity and choices. The more they use Clusive, the smarter Clusive’s recommendations become.
Developed with the principles of Universal Design for Learning, Clusive supports readers 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 articles and full-length texts, especially for middle school students. Texts include:
- Full-length public domain books
- Common Core State Standards Initiative recommended public domain texts from Appendix B
- Historical biographies from the Library of Congress’ Meet Amazing Americans series
- Materials from SERP’s Word Generation academic language development series
- Articles from SERP’s STARI curriculum
- Texts from Tar Heel Reader
- Add your own! Teachers and parents can share texts with their readers, while students can store their own texts in their personal library.
The Clusive library is constantly expanding, so check back often for the latest resources.
