Featured 3-24-2014: Subtext


Classroom groups can exchange ideas right in the pages of digital texts using Subtext, a free iPad app, opening up opportunities to engage students and foster analysis and writing skills.

Subtext 1
Subtext was built to support classroom reading, with practical features such as getting everyone on the same page in class to insight into how your students read.
With Google Books and Feedbooks built in, you can search for any book or digital document, or import your own ePub formatted documents. You can also share and discuss web pages with a class in the same way as books.
A set of annotation tools helps to engage students and foster analysis and writing skills. Students can highlight key passages or tag a set of commonly-used literary concepts.
Subtext 2
Set up a closed class groups in Subtext to keep your students focused and secure as they read. They will only see notes from you and their classmates.
Subtext can help you follow how students and classroom groups progress, including reading speed, word look-ups, highlights, notes, and quiz results.
Subtext is aligned with the Common Core Standards. When students read with Subtext, they are encouraged to analyze what they read, articulate what they think, and make connections between texts and the real world.
