Community Review for Subtext
Subtext is an excellent teaching tool in a 1:1 device environment, because of how it allows students to collaborate with each other through annotating and discussing a piece of literature or text or historical document. I wish it didn't require book by book purchase for more current titles. But it is free and you can pull in free titles that are out of copyright--anything from Declaration of Independence to Shakespeare for close reading.
How I Use It
Subtext is an excellent app for encouraging close reading by students. You can set up your class, pull in a text(free or one from Google books) and insert your own comments and questions or let students highlight and make their own comments and questions.
