How I Use It
The app is easy to use and has a variety of fiction and non-fiction texts. I am able to choose lessons from the app or create my own lessons. I can go to the library and use the filter to find the texts I need for my students. I can search by specific themes, grade level and lexile range. The app also allows me to analyze my students' performance and track their progress. I can find poems, novels and historical writings. It is very versatile and also includes Spanish texts.
My Take
This is an excellent teaching tool. I like the fact that I can assign questions to my students, which promote higher level thinking and analysis skills. The account is easy to set up and free for teachers.
