"ThinkCERCA gave our students a way to analyze and respond to written passages that cited evidence, considered the counterargument, and the audience. Our students started using this framework in other areas and the quality of classroom instruction increased accordingly. I am very glad we decided to implement ThinkCERCA in our middle schools."
