I saw this Black Out text (for improved reading comprehension) last night on Facebook- and it is wonderful!
Eric Curts’ post has many great tips in creating information text documents for your students- and then having them delete the unneeded details . This will help them with reading comprehension and provide a tool to help them focus on the main ideas. As Eric says, you could do this with paper and a black marker, but I think his tech solution is even better! As a variation on a theme, consider having your students create Black Out poetry.
