Introducing Prism, Hot Literacy Tool for the Common Core ~ November Learning News

Introducing Prism, Hot Literacy Tool for the Common Core ~ November Learning News | Common Core Online | Scoop.it

"The November Learning team is excited to share a hot new literacy tool, introduced to us by a brilliant teacher, Laura Robertson, from The St. Anne's Belfield Studio School in Virginia. This intuitive and multi-functional digital literacy tool can transform the way


 teachers approach close reading with their students, while sparking lively text-based discussions. Prism is a tool for "crowdsourcing interpretation." Students are invited to provide an interpretation of a text by highlighting words according to different themes or categories. Each individual interpretation then contributes to the generation of a visualization which demonstrates the combined interpretation of all the users. Prism helps to reveal patterns that exist in the subjective experience of reading a text and can serve as the launching pad for any number of common-core aligned activities, projects and learning experiences."

Sample Student's curator insight, April 16, 6:11 PM

What a fantastic tool. Text analysis is really important and committing one-self safely to this analysis is often problematic. Prism has the potential to support equity, engagement and involvement in text analysis as a collaborative tool. Perhaps it could be coupled with an individual and private activity, followed by the Prism highlighting activity. The individual would then be able to compare their responses with those of others and re-examine their decisions. Beyond this though, it links really well with the "Why did you say that" thinking routine. As a collaborative followup, two ideas occur to me - the first is simply to ask individuals to explain their actions and reasoning. The second is for individuals to explain why others might have made decisions different to their own, followed by interaction between partners, enhancing the complexity of the thinking around certain points.

I really love this. And it is suitable for any age and type of text.
