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.

    Thank you for sharing! I would like to use it, too, but can you use Subtext on Edmodo without an iPad? All my students, including myself, have PC’s. I also have access to a regular Mac computer… no iPad though:(

    I do not have “Apps” tab for my Edmodo account. Please advise.
