Coming Soon: Read&Write

Purple Puzzle Piece: Read&Write for Google
Read&Write by TextHelp will soon be available to teachers and students. Read&Write is a literacy toolbar that exists in the Chrome Browser, in G Suite Files, and pdfs. This toolbar has many features to support all learners such as text to speech, dictionary, a visual dictionary, the ability to annotate text, and much, much more.

If you are interested in learning more, we are offering a 3-part series beginning January 19 by providing an introduction to the tool. Session 2 on February 23 will focus on using Read&Write to Support Vocabulary Instruction and the third session on March 30 will focus on using Read&Write to Support Writing & Research.  All sessions will occur from 3:30-5:00 in Room 48 at the District Office. Teachers will be paid their hourly PD rate. Due to the nature of this series, attendance is expected at all 3 sessions. Registration is available at https://goo.gl/m2TU0R. Teachers interested in exploring Read&Write in advance of upcoming training, you can install the tool using this link.
