Cape Cod Community College
Why did you choose to use Perusall?
I mostly use online OER sources for my course. Perusall is a way to replace my previous method for teaching close reading skills- highlighting and annotating.
What are your favorite features of Perusall?
The fact that it provides a guided reading experience for my students and also enables authentic group discussion in an online environment.
What are you seeing as a result of using Perusall?
More students are completing the reading, understanding the reading, and applying the terms in class to the reading.
How has using Perusall changed your course?
Teaching Introduction to Literature, one of the student learning outcomes is about close reading. Perusall allows me to authentically assess the reading process, rather than giving a quiz on each reading and allows me to ask pointed questions and then guide my students answers in the discussion forums. I can also set Perusall to form small groups of students and provide choices for them to read from within those groups. This is great for an online environment.
