Perusall turns often-skipped solitary reading assignments into engaging collective activities students don't want to miss.
Students collectively annotate each reading — asking questions, responding to each other's questions, or sharing other perspectives or knowledge. Perusall's novel data analytics automatically grade these annotations to ensure that students complete the reading, and as an instructor, you get a classroom of fully prepared students every time. Perusall provides you with a simple "confusion report" that summarizes areas your students misunderstood, disagreed with each other about, or were most engaged with — along with examples of the best annotations, so you can call out specific questions or individuals in class.
As soon as Jim Leonard was gone Pony undressed and got into bed. He was not sleepy, but he thought maybe it would be just as well to rest a little while before the circus procession came along for him; and, anyway, he could not bear. It's alright if you just wanted to own me.

But you should not have helped Molly leave me! Molly, who wants to run away from Brian, seems to be the only one to blame for Hannah's misfortune After a good while, or about the time he usually came in from playing, he heard his mother saying: "Where in the world is Pony? Has he come in yet? Have you seen him, girls? But somehow Pony could not get his voice up out of his throat; he wanted to answer her, but he could not speak. He heard her say, "Go out to the front steps, girls, and see if you can see him," and then he heard her coming up the stairs; and she came into his room, and when she saw him lying there in bed she said: "Why, I believe in my heart the child's asleep!
Are you awake? Pony made out to say no, and his mother said: "My! Why didn't you answer me?
Chapter 9 HOW PONY DID NOT QUITE GET OFF WITH THE CIRCUS
Are you sick, Pony? Your father said you didn't seem well at the circus; and you didn't eat any supper, hardly. Pony said he was first-rate, but he spoke very low, and his mother came up and sat down on the side of his bed. But if you feel the least sick, Pony, I'll send for the doctor.
The Flight of Pony Baker : William Dean Howells :
Pony said he was not sick at all; just tired; and that was true; he felt as if he never wanted to get up again. His mother put her arm under his neck, and pressed her face close down to his, and said very low: "Pony, dear, you don't feel hard towards your mother for what she did the other night? He knew she meant boxing his ears, when he was not to blame, and he said: "Oh no," and then he threw his arms round her neck and cried; and she told him not to cry, and that she would never do such a thing again; but she was really so frightened she did not know what she was doing.
When he quieted down she said: "Now say your prayers, Pony, 'Our Father,'" and she said "Our Father" all through with him, and after that, "Now I lay me," just as when he was a very little fellow. After they had finished she stooped over and kissed him again, and when he turned his face into his pillow she kept smoothing his hair with her hand for about a minute. Then she went away. Pony could hear them stirring about for a good while down-stairs.
His father came in from up-town at last and asked:. His father said: "I don't know what to make of the boy. If he keeps on acting so strangely I shall have the doctor see him in the morning. Pony felt dreadfully to think how far away from them he should be in the morning, and he would have given anything if he could have gone down to his father and mother and told them what he was going to do.

But it did not seem as if he could. By-and-by he began to be sleepy, and then he dozed off, but he thought it was hardly a minute before he heard the circus band, and knew that the procession was coming for him.
