Creating #BookSnaps With Markup On The iPad

Recently I had the opportunity to share the idea of using BookSnaps as an alternative to traditional reading logs for independent reading books.

BookSnaps allow students to quickly create shareable visual artifacts of applying close reading strategies while reading their independent reading books, make connections to the text, and share text snippets with classmates like a mini book talk by digitally annotating the text and saving the result as an image.

The steps for creating BookSnaps with the Markup extension in the Photos app on the iPad are listed below. You can also grab a PDF of these steps here.
I'm always looking for more great examples of student-created BookSnaps. If you would like to share some great examples of your students' work, please send them my way.
