What is Education Genius?
The Genius Education Department works closely with teachers at all levels and across disciplines to design and implement classroom projects using the “Genius” collaborative annotation platform. Whether the assignment is a classic work of literature, primary source historical document, or scientific article, Education Genius lets students analyze and discuss their coursework line by line, online. We’re updating close reading for the twenty-first century! Public school educators, check out our annotated Common Core to learn how you can use Genius to implement the standards for reading and writing.
Who writes the annotations?
Across the Rap, Rock, Poetry and News Genius channels, students are major participants in our project of breaking down all genres of writing. Teachers add texts to the site and students sign up for accounts to annotate their reading, earning “Genius” IQ points for their contributions.
Who do I contact if I’m a teacher, professor, or school?
