Engage Students with Informational Texts

Student work with informational text doesn’t have to be rote or boring! Use these creative ideas to inspire activities in your classroom that engage students deeply with the informational text content they are reading.

Wixie is the perfect digital canvas for students to use to share their ideas about the information they are reading. Students can use Wixie to create engaging and valuable products that show what they think about information through a combination of text, images, and voice narration.
