How I Use It
I enjoyed using this application with the students. Students were engaged and focused. Students also enjoyed seeing the final product. Students were also able to see main ideas in text through the repeating of terms used.
My Take
I used this website for an introductory activity with the students by having them write ten to fifteen words or phrases that describe themselves. Students were engaged and the learning curve was slight. My special needs students were able to participate in this activity. Students then use this website to summarize short text to see terms that stand out in the text.
