Language Shouldn't Be A Barrier To Learning & Loving Science. 

Support ESOL Students No Matter Where Learning Takes Place.



At Penda Learning, we've made it our business to address the needs of all students, no matter their race, color, national origin, or home language. Language shouldn't be a barrier to learning & loving science! Built upon 20+ ESOL best practices, brain research, and Dr. Robert Marzano's high-yield instructional strategies, Penda has a successful track record of supporting thousands of ESOL students with inclusive science curriculum in some of the nation's largest school districts. 


- Science Instruction With Integrated ESOL Strategies: Penda Learning's science instruction is built upon 20+ ESOL strategies, including non-linguistic representation, read-aloud in English with voice speed control, translation and read-aloud in over 60 languages, English/language toggle, a clickable-word picture dictionary, text chunking, and disciplinary vocabulary. Whether learning at school or at home, students can even work at their own pace, complete activities in multiple sessions, and make multiples attempts on science activities to improve their score and gain more points.


- Immersive Reader & Language Translation Tool: Penda's immersive reader and language-translation tool (with read-aloud) supports every stage of ESOL student language acquisition - from preproduction through fluency. Teachers even have the ability of enabling or disabling the immersive reader and language-translation tool per student, offering the appropriate level of support each step of the way.

  • "Duval County Public School's (DCPS) transition to distance learning has been an all hands-on deck process. Our partnership with Penda Science has proven to be paramount in helping facilitate the 'switch' from classroom use of Penda to distance learning. The way that the activities are designed mirror our district's format which creates familiarity for our teachers and students. One major assistance in providing support to our teachers and students was Penda offering access to the Penda platform for a number of different grade levels and courses along with increased support for these teachers. Penda Science has proven to be invaluable in helping our teachers maintain instruction and students learning in a fun and engaging way. We are grateful for the partnership.”
