John Dalziel's insight:
CommonLit is a free website designed to help learners develop advanced reading and writing skills.
Learners within the USA are the target audience but, it is well worth a closer look here in the UK.
CommonLit gives practitioners access to a full free digital curriculum that enables them to...
● assign texts to learners,
● score written responses,
● send real-time feedback and
● collect analytics on learner progress.
CommonLit has recently released a new feature called text sets and they are available for free.
Each text set contains 5-20 individuals lesson resources that share a common topic or historical period.
Like all of the materials on CommonLit’s free website, the texts themselves can be assigned to classes or individual students via the platform.
tudents answer a set of text-dependent questions on-line and practitioners access data analytics on learner progress.
Each text also comes with...
● a discussion guide,
● recommended paired passages,
● related media, and
● a parent guide.
Learning providers with limited technology can download printable versions of the resources.
Another relatively new feature from CommonLit is Guided Reading Mode, designed specifically to help struggling readers understand difficult text.
