My Take

I think this is a great resource for teachers to use in their classrooms. It's not flashy or gamified, but it does focus on standards-based analysis of leveled texts. It's really been useful as a library to draw from when I want to focus on a specific standard or skill. I also really enjoyed using it for reteaching or extension activities for different personalized learning goals.

How I Use It

I love using CommonLit for several reasons. First, I love having a large library of texts to turn to when I want to focus on a specific standard or theme. Second, I love the data dashboard. It breaks down student performance by student, by standard. Lastly, I love that I can assign texts to specific students, enable guided reading mode, or use discussion questions to draw connections between multiple texts.
