My best praise is to say the students fell in love with this application. It allowed them to delve into the text in new and interesting ways and truly enjoy the time we spent on text.

Owl Eyes provides a free etext library focusing on Common Core exemplar texts for English Language Arts with supportive annotations, critical analyses, and classroom management tools. Our academic, Common Core-aligned, and thought-provoking annotations are designed to provide teachers with additional insights into texts. Each text can be assigned to a classroom and given a unique reading experience—you can control the visibility of annotations and opt to use them for your classroom… or simply allow students to create their own! Set up your virtual classroom within minutes to create assignments, track student progress, and annotate with your students, simply and beautifully, and on any device.
