Great way to interact with text online, but it is not compatible with a Mac laptop.

How I Use It
I have my seniors re-read a text they read as freshmen. This time, they're looking at it with a much more critical eye, examining the nuances of the descriptive language. Curriculet was helpful because it let me target certain areas of the text to have students stop and examine the language. I could also target and pinpoint what I wanted them to examine. Because of the way it's set up, it made student interaction with the text more immediate than pencil/paper analysis.
My Take
I think this can be a great tool, but it doesn't replace conversational interaction about texts. It is good to create focused reading before discussion.
