Zoozil Loves Schools!
Zoozil can complement classroom lessons for early and ongoing adolescent literacy development for children at all reading levels
Reading comprehension. Students are able to draw upon their background knowledge and personal interests to connect with the text. True-to-history endings are specifically delineated to avoid confusion.
Autonomy. Children link choices with achievement. Reading self-selected books independently will build on the in-class reading curriculum.
Exploration. In the land of Zoozil, what-if questions are the root of adventure! Engage in exciting conversations with your students about the different choices they made throughout the story, why they chose them, and what they thought of the outcome.
Trust. Zoozil promotes an environment where readers can feel a sense of belonging, competence and respect — something students may not always feel amongst their peers.
Success. Support for literacy development is the key to students’ achievements beyond the classroom. It’s not just about academics, it’s about discovering the joys of reading and the enrichment of their lives through books.

Zoozil is an accessible app for all types of readers. I have found it to be extremely beneficial for struggling readers because many of these kids find traditional books to be daunting. Zoozil provides an entry point into reading through the ability to change the story during exciting plot events and the opportunity to gain perspective as they read the story through different characters. Students are able to read and comprehend historical fiction through narratives that not only inform, but encourage the reader to be a part of the ride.
With history traditionally being presented as a collection of dates and cardboard historical figures that have to be memorized, students have been turned off to learning about the past and dreaded reading through boring textbooks. With Zoozil, readers will be thrust into the action so that history comes marvelously alive!

Zoozil is a powerful tool for any teacher or parent that knows the importance of being a good reader. The current shift in literacy education is to provide students with a balance of fiction and non-fiction. Through the unique genre they have created, Zoozil has revolutionized the way books come alive.
