Teacher Review for Curriculet

Versatile site that allows me to upload texts that I assign. Annotation capabilities to insert instruction and videos along with checking for understanding. Reports for teachers to monitor student understanding and interaction time with the text.

How I Use It
I would use this APP to monitor students' reading time and interaction with text. For some of the longer text, e.g. Great Expectations, the annotations and videos would extend reading time and may interfere with the comprehension/enjoyment of the text. Maybe assign just some of the annotations or assign to read a certain number of the annotations. I like the idea of being able to upload my own text and add my own annotations. That way I can focus students if we are working on a certain aspect of the text.
My Take
Great for 1:1 classrooms. Students can access and interact with text on their devices and teachers can monitor time spent on text and students' interaction with text. Product is free!
