    I purchased books through Google and downloaded them to my class iPads. But the Subtext app was subsequently deleted and reinstalled. Now the books I had downloaded are not available. How can I reinstall them?
    • Subtext - HI Mr. H, sorry, we thought we had responded already! Yes, just go to the 3 lines at the top of My Library, choose 'book on this device', then locate the book and tap 'Read it'. If that doesn't work, go re-search for the books by tapping 'Tap to add books & articles' then do a search and re-add the book. Google will know that you still own the books. Please let us know if you have other ?s.

    Help! How do I get my own content into subtext within the Edmodo app? (I'm in Canada, and can't get the Subtext app for ipad-yet...hoping it will be available son tho!)
    • Subtext - Hi Ms. MacQuarrie, right now you'd have to use our web app (which doesn't have Edmodo login) to bring content in. Once you log in at web.subtext.com, you'd click on Search, install our bookmarklet, then bring in any web article or free eBook. Paid ebooks and PDFs are supported only in our iPad app. Hope that helps until we can support Canada in the App Store!

    • Ms. MacQuarrie - thanks for the reply...sigh...just have to wait...:(

    Hi! I´m from Argentina and want to install this app in my Ipad but i cant...I dont´t understand why, Is this app available for the Argentine Store? thanks
    • Subtext - Hi there-Subtext is unfortunately not available in the Argentine App Store... You could try the web version, which is in beta at web.subtext.com. The feature sets are slightly different though.

    • Subtext - Hi Mrs. Davies, are you using Subtext on the web (in beta) at web.subtext.com or via an iPad? On both platforms you can create comments/discussions, add quizzes or add polls. On the web, tagging (with the highlights) isn't there yet... but you can have students use color to break up the text. On the iPad, you have to share the discussion with your Edmodo group (extra check box) to get them to post to the Edmodo discussion stream. There may be a bug with this right now - we're releasing a fix in our next iPad release. If you are all on iPads, you won't see more...

    Re-reading a great presentation called 'The New Literacy: the Next Chapter in Student Doing' from Sean Beaverson in Bloomington, MN. A great reminder on some of the fundamentals of changing how students engage in reading.

    Good Morning - I have installed the Subtext App into my English classes but it is not showing up on the students' iPads. Help would be appreciated.
    • Mrs. Peretz - Hi Ms. Nicholson, When using the iPad you need to install the subtext app directly from the apple app store.

      • Feb 25, 2014
    • Ms. Nicholson - OK, thanks!

      • Feb 25, 2014
    • Subtext - Hi Ms. Nicholson- yes, what Heather said! Once you install Subtext on iPad, you should then install the (web-based) Edmodo app on your group on Edmodo (go to the Edmodo store and look for Subtext). Then you and your students can use your Edmodo usernames to log into your iPads - and the group will come in automatically. let us know if you need add'l help getting going.

    Also...why do only some groups show up sometimes when I am trying to share a book?
    • Subtext - Are you sure you've installed the app on those groups? After the first time you import Edmodo groups into the app, you'll still need to install the Subtext Edmodo app on any new groups you want to bring into the app. Our support team can help with a step-by-step, so we double check and make sure this isn't the issue:)

      • Feb 20, 2014
    • Ms. Shine - It actually ended up having to do with the fact that I added a co-teacher. I think I figured it out, mostly...

    I am trying to share a reading from the web to my students. I did this successfully once before, but now it is not allowing me to add that text to my groups. Any idea what factors might cause this and what I can do to fix it?
    • Subtext - Hi, Ms. Shine:
      We got the email you sent to support and someone is looking into this and will get back to you shortly. I did, however, just want to quickly mention that you may want to make sure you've installed the app for the correct group and that you're logging into the correct account each time. Is it possible you have more than one account?
      Watch for an email from our support team!

    Question: How do I archive classes from last year? I went to both the App & the Website & can't figure it out. Help!
    • Subtext - Hi Mrs Carbone, in the iPad app, go into the group that you want to archive in the groups section of My Library. Then tap the 3 white lines at the top right corner of the Group screen and choose 'Archive Group'. (Check to make sure you are on the latest iPad version if you aren't seeing this). If you ever want to un-archive the group, go to the + sign next to Groups and choose 'Archived Groups'. Archiving a group will remove the notes from your books but you can always get them back later by un-archiving... Hope that helps!

    Excited to unveil our new spot on the Renaissance website: https://www.renaissance.com/Products/Subtext and how we fit into the bigger reading picture, which means balancing an emphasis on "wide reading" and "close reading". They both are important in their own ways.
  • Ms. Forbes's avatar
    I recently installed the subtext app, and was having my students respond to the text and one another. However, I cannot see what they are posting on edmodo, even though they launched the app from edmodo. And when I view they posts on subtext, I have to reply to the string of posts at the bottom of all the posts, rather than reply immediately after/under the post I want to respond to. Is there anyway of fixing this/doing this.

    A) seeing the posts in edmodo
    B) having responses be to the post you want, like a sub-post, rather than one long string of posts.
    • Karen Finklestein - I cannot answer your first question, but your second one is a limitation of Edmodo. Edmodo does not have threaded discussions, so you can only respond to the group and the post shows up as the last post. Some teachers have used the @ symbol as a work around - you do @studentname so that they know who the response is directed at.

      • Feb 3, 2014
    • Subtext - Hi Ms. Forbes - One thing to check on here- are you checking the box when you share a note - so that it shows up in the Edmodo stream? Here are some screen shots to show you what I mean:

    I'm trying to upgrade my subtext app to a premimum membership and having great difficulty doing so. Any suggestions?
    • Mrs. Andersson - I'm very frustrated with this program, and want someone to respond. I have sent requests and no one at subtext has gotten back to me. Not sure if I'd recommend this app to my district. Which by the way just passes a 5k levy. I just want to upgrade to a premium account.

    • Subtext - Hi Mrs. Anderson - Natalie from our team has replied to you over email. Subtext has free and premium features on the iPad and costs $3/student. Please look for an email from Natalie- it would have come from natalie@subtext.com (in case it ended up in your spam folder). thanks for your patience and initial interest in Subtext.

    What was it like in Washington on the day of the march fifty years ago? How was non-violent protest used in the fight for civil rights? Help your students bring it to life.

    In recognition of the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington in August 1963, we've developed new materials to help you engage your students! Each text provides unique insight into what it was like to be part of the crowd that gathered in Washington on that historic day. Several texts examine the strategy and effectiveness of non-violent protests as a means to bring about change.

    Included Texts:
    -- More Than a Dream: Photos of the March on Washington: Some newly-released photos are included and annotations ask students to infer what it was like to be there.
    -- Last Word: Rep John Lewis shares his memories of that historic day, including with Stephen Colbert!
    Civil Rights: Songs and Poems: This compilation has students look at poems and song lyrics from the day.
    -- Images from the Civil Rights Movement: This text includes 19 images from the Library of Congress that help students understand the consequences of non-violent protest.
    -- 1968 Olympics Silent Protest: This raises awareness of black athletes' famous actions and bridges into the Black Power movement.
    -- 'The Ballot or the Bullet': This famous speech by Malcolm X is enriched with video and comparisons to Dr. King's style of protest.
    -- 'I Have a Dream' (iPad only, PDF): A video segment of this speech is embedded on each page of the text, so students can closely analyze rhetorical devices and delivery as they read.
    -- 'Nobody Turn Me Around: A People's History on the 1963 March' (iPad only, PDF): This text includes a rarely-seen 4-minute mini-documentary.

    I am still having issues with Subtext. I have the book in my class's library, all have been added to the group, my discussion comments are in there; I can see them. However, when they click on the app, they cannot see my discussion prompts. What can be wrong? Thx
    • Ms. Ford - Yes, shared the book and the notes w/group. My students report they still do not see it when they click on Subtext.

      • Subtext - Hi Ms. Ford, I am not seeing any groups in our system (unless you are using another name) under either your Edmodo or Gmail accounts with students in them. Perhaps you are sharing to the group 'Teachers+' and not to a new class group that you set up? Or perhaps try checking the box that's for 'share on edmodo' which makes your notes show up in the students' Edmodo stream: http://www.subtext.com/newsite/wp-content/upl...

      • Mr. Spicer - I’m hoping someone can help me with a few questions regarding the use of Subtext-both on the iPad and through Edmodo.

        First, is it possible for students to use Subtext through Edmodo and read a book? I purchased a book through Google books (My Brother Sam is Dead) and added it to my group (SpiceBurger). However, when students use the Subtext app. on Edmodo, they can only add the book to their library. It doesn’t look like they can see the assignment I created for them, or that they can read the book. Any help here?

        Has anyone used volume purchasing

      • Subtext - Hi Billy- right now you cannot read paid books on Edmodo (which is what you are reading), only public domain books and articles. Assignments are also iPad only. Our web reader is in beta - and our Edmodo app was built to help classrooms where the students are still reading in print, but may want to collaborate/respond to close reading passages via our Edmodo app.
        As for volume purchasing, all ebooks are intended to be purchased 1 per device. This isn't our rule, it's Google's (and Apple/Amazon have similar ones). There is a loophole with most retailers

    • Ms. Sikking - I work in a one to one school district. The students have the subtext on the district iPads. For some reason, 2/3 of the students have premium accounts and 1/3 do not. This means that only some students are able to have the text read to them while others are not. Why is this happening and how can I fix it?

I bought a book, but was only able to add it to a few iPads before getting hit with a 'reached your limit on devices' notification. So, how do i get the same book on my other iPads? It sounds like many others are confused regarding this topic too.

    Thanks for any help on this!
