CommonLit is about one of the very best education sites out there – it’s free, lets you create virtual classrooms, and has zillions of texts.
I’ve written a lot about it and it’s on several “Best” lists (see “CommonLit” Now Lets Teachers Create Free Virtual Classrooms)
One of its shortcomings, though, was that though students could answer questions and respond to the text, it didn’t let them annotate it.
They fixed that issue this morning when they announced that they have added an annotation tool to the site.
I’ve embedded a video about it below, and you can read more here.
Now, if they only could add a “student choice” option so that students could freely choose texts to read. Now, they can only access ones that teachers assign to them.
