Our Mission


To help raise achievement in schools and reduce workload for teachers and school administrators by supporting Response to Intervention (RtI), differentiated instruction, pedagogical best practices, and school improvement monitoring without adding “one more thing to do.”

Intervention (RtI)


Penda Learning's activity structure, intervention group feature, and report capabilities support effective RtI. Activities are built upon brain-based research of Piaget, Vygotsky, and current neurobiology and scaffolded screen-by-screen using Webb’s Depth of Knowledge (DOK) questioning complexity. Teachers can create and manage intervention groups of which students can be moved into/out of as their progress towards standard mastery increases. Custom reports can be generated to monitor intervention group progress with no extra work or data collection.

 

MATHEMATICS

 

With over 300 mathematics activities, Penda Learning supports college and career readiness standards. Aligned to several state standards and Common Core State Standards for Mathematics,  Penda offers activities for grades 4 – 10 (algebra and geometry). The library of Penda mathematics activities support real-world application of mathematics and the scaffolding needed to reach the level of rigor today's standards strive to achieve.

 

SCIENCE

 

Penda Learning has over 450 science activities for grades 4 – 10 (biology), aligned to state science standards and the three dimensions of Next Generation Science Standards: practices, disciplinary core ideas, cross-cutting concepts.  Educators can browse or search Penda activities by state standard, content area, grade and topic, or keyword search.

  • "My kids are enthralled with this program. The competition factor alone is driving them. They ask me several times a day to update our Penda Points that I keep on the board. They are logging in at home. They beg me to come in early, at lunch, and to stay after school from extended day. I am really excited about this."

Students will have to demonstrate knowledge for the standards on all levels, what a great accountability piece! Everything a teacher would want in a program, is available through Penda.”

  • "With Penda it is quite easy and fun for the students to use. The teachers feel that it compliments their curriculum because they can track mastery of the benchmarks. They find it quite easy to follow because the reports are generated weekly and they are able to generate their own reports to use as needed.“
