In-class reading, assigned reading for homework, independent reading, research, and quizzes.
Lack of student engagement in reading. Difficulty differentiating with reading and difficulty making reading come alive for students.
Running off multiple copies of stories and/or stories broken down into paragraphs. I wasted a TON of paper! Annotating with sticky notes that ended up all over the floor.
Students can get immediate feedback and I can see right away where confusion with reading is occurring. Students are more likely to message me with a question than to raise their hand in front of everyone. I can differentiate and break text down for students as well as embed pictures and videos to help visualize reading for students. We are also using it for data and giving benchmark reading passages there with questions by standard so we can see student by student and whole class how they are doing with reading and adapt teaching based on that.
Different genres of literature, benchmark test reading passages, reading articles and informational texts, and independent reading texts.
Start small with short reading passages, and definitely use the annotation feature with your students so you can see where their confusion with the text is occurring.
