What is a reading modality?

When assigning CommonLit 360 Reading Lessons, you will see an option to Enable Reading Modalities. Reading Modalities include in-text prompts to read parts of a lesson as a whole class, with a partner, or independently. Thus, these modalities represent the different ways students can learn the content within a lesson.

CommonLit recommends enabling them for in-class instruction and disabling them for at-home or fully independent learning.

See how to enable/disable Reading Modalities for a Reading Lesson here:
