Amplify CKLA is introducing features to the eReader to create a more accessible experience and to support students in growing their close reading and reading comprehension skills.

The following features will be available in eReader within the CKLA Hub for back to school 2021:

  • Highlighting (Grades K–5)

  • Bookmarking (Grades K–5)

  • Note-taking (Grades 3–5)

Updates for Grades K–2

Note: If students are using shared usernames, they will be able to see the highlights and bookmarks created by other students.

Highlighting

Students can highlight by clicking on any word in the Grade K–2 Readers. If students click and highlight multiple words in a row, the phrase will turn into a continuous highlight. To remove a highlight, students can simply click on the word again and the highlight will disappear.

Bookmarking

Students can leave a bookmark on any page by clicking on the orange bookmark in the upper lefthand corner of any page in the eReader.

Students can see which chapter their bookmark is in by viewing the Table of Contents. They can also click the “Go to Bookmark” button to jump directly to that page.

Updates for Grades 3–5

Highlighting

Students can highlight by clicking and dragging across any word, phrase or sentence in the Grade 3–5 Readers. If students want to resize or adjust their selection, they can use the circular draggers.

Students can choose between four different color options. After students create a highlight, they have the option to also create a note.

Note-taking

Students can create a note by clicking on the “Add Note” button. They can move or resize the text box around the page.

Students can revisit, edit or delete their notes by clicking on the “Notes” icon next to their highlight.

Bookmarking

Students can leave a bookmark on any page by clicking on the orange bookmark in the upper lefthand corner of any page in the eReader.

Students can see which chapter their bookmark is in by viewing the Table of Contents. They can also click the “Go to Bookmark” button to jump directly to that page.
