A resource created by Emily Hellmich, University of Arizona.

Moving (quickly!) into online teaching environments does not mean the end of working with texts in the language, literature, and culture classroom. 

And in some cases, it can be an opportunity to push student thinking about texts, engaging them in new literacy practices that intentionally and creatively use digital platforms.

This (free) resource includes ideas on how to work with texts in online/remote teaching that Emily Hellmich has used in her own classes. Whenever possible, she includes links to examples and to templates that you can use yourself. The document includes information on the following topics:

  • Annotations
  • Jigsaw
  • Discussions, remixed
  • Digital Literacies: Transforming Texts
