  1. Texts are documents (e.g. reading passages) that students use as a stimulus for writing. Teachers can have students use the WriterKey Text Marking Tool to annotate these texts prior to responding to a prompt.
  2. Resources are supporting documents that help students on an assignment. Resource examples include Model Texts, an Assignment Sheet, a video, or background document. A web link can be used as a Resource but not as a Text (because it cannot be annotated).
