How I Use It
Our students enjoy the many fine pieces of literature offered on CommonLit. They have an opportunity to practice reading comprehension skills while enjoying the stories. I have used CommonLit to introduce book clubs, novels, and nonfiction content. I have used individual assignments to work with struggling students and advanced students. This is a wonderful resource.
My Take
CommonLit is an important tool in our Language Arts classroom. I like the supports built into each assignment, the ease of measuring student performance, and the ease of integration with Google Classroom. Honestly, there is nothing that I do not like.
