Aaron Leary and Olivia Sumpter discussing Bedrock Learning's mission

“We’re really only at the start of our journey.” - Aaron Leary, Bedrock Learning’s founder.

Seven years ago, Bedrock Learning began with a vocabulary curriculum. Now, Bedrock offers over 30,000 subject-specific words, two grammar curricula, and a vocabulary and reading curriculum teachers worldwide know and love.

From increasing learners’ cultural capital to narrowing language gaps in the classroom, Bedrock’s mission is to empower learners and support teachers.

We caught up with three of the minds behind Bedrock Learning’s literacy curriculum at the recent Schools and Academies Show to discover how Bedrock is empowering literacy education and closing word gaps in the classroom.
