This is a good project for supporting reading skills of our students.
This sis a good project to enhance reading and support student engagement and understanding. I like in this project the kind of readings suggested and the variety of topics as well. It helps kids to read about different topics without taking a lot of time in searching. It also helps me as a teacher to work more on differentiation in my class. The only concern is that some readings are written with a high language level which may prevent some students from a deeper understanding to the topic.
How I Use It
I asked students to use the tool to select readings according to different topics and levels. Later students share these readings summaries in pairs and then in groups. After that students worked on the interconnections between the different topics and issues they read about. As a writing activity students chose the most interesting topic they read about and find enough arguments to support their decisions.
