What is Subtext?
Subtext is an app that lets you engage a class in discussion around any digital doc, from books to web articles to your own ePubs. Subtext on Edmodo supports collaborative reading discussions.
Common Core Alignment
Subtext aligns with the close reading, critical analysis and writing skills that are core to the Common Core. In the iPad app, students can tag key concepts, write chapter-end blog posts, or take quizzes. In the Edmodo app, students can reply to your prompts on the Web.
