How I Use It
I use this for Independent Work Station during station rotations. I assign a text (or different texts when I want to differentiate) with several questions to gauge student learning and engagement. For the younger students, I add questions every few sentences or paragraphs to get them in the habit of going back in the reading for information, but for older students, I add questions at the end of a page or passage. I mainly find texts and upload them, but occasionally, I will use the lessons already developed.
My Take
It has works fairly well with all our students, even the younger ones. I like that I can share my assignments with other teachers in my school or publicly, and I really like that my students and I can add our own notes, read a-loud, highlight, define, etc. It is incredibly easy to set up and make assignments. I don't like that with PDFs you can only add questions at the end and that re-assigning an assignment can be a pain, but overall it is an awesome tool to make sure students are getting their reading done!
