My Take

I love this teaching tool. The ease of getting it running, the ability for kids to access it and the thoroughness of it makes it a quality tool in my classroom. I can monitor students ability to read and respond to text at their speed and pull small groups while others are working constructively from the site.

How I Use It

Assigned to classes that were formed. Students who need scaffolding can have "guided practice" enabled, also has a read aloud option and highlighting for additional support. Open ended questions contain examples of quality answers to help in scoring, while the multiple choice questions are scored for you. The variety of texts allows you to pair with any genre you're reading or writing to.
