How I Use It
This product has lots of resources for teachers to use to access text quickly, assess or introduce a reading passage. The chat box on the bottom right acts as a pop up and is kind of annoying to be there. Overall this is an easy product to navigate and presents the information in a clear, clutter-free way.
My Take
Signing up (which is free and easy) takes you to the main screen, where you are presented with lesson plans that are in no particular order - but you can pick them by grade band. Clicking on one of the lessons, you an have the program read you the passage, but I found the volume to be too low to hear. There is a question (Assessment) section and a vocabulary tab as well, both are easy to find and use. The website leans towards literacy more so than any other subject area.
