AWESOME! This was sooooo good. I needed this....all of it. Thanks so much for some great information.
Annotation is one of the hardest concept for students to grasp. I liked the way it was explained. Newsela is something I will be checking out. Having the Diigo bar will be very helpful. I teach middle school, but I am in hopes of modifying to lower level than ninth and tenth.
Understanding and Analyzing Complex Texts to encourage students is welcoming for my fourth graders. Thank you

This was really great for identifying reading levels of texts and literature and how to define a complex text. better yet there were also strategies for reading these texts for deeper comprehension. Excellent!

Very informative. I haven't tried Diigo before, sounds like something students would enjoy.
This was a very informative webinar. Interesting on the statistics of students that can't read when entering college. I am going to explore more about the program.
