The use of multiple sources when reading and writing in literature and language arts in classroom contexts is ubiquitous. Among other instructional activities, teachers often organize a set of literary texts around a theme or as part of genre study; they supplement a target literary text with other texts such as information about the author or the historical period in which the literary text was written; and increasingly teachers are engaging students in reading literature on-line incorporating a broad range of annotations and links as well as new literary formats such as interactive fiction (Beach, 2012; Beach, Appleman, Fecho, & Simon, 2016; Turner et al., 2017).
