About this Learning Opportunity

Read & Write for Google provides a ton of literacy support tools for student readers and writers alike. We'll explore all this tool has to offer in Docs, Slides, and on the web. Leave prepared to offer ALL students in your classes with ways to expand their reading and writing horizons thanks to the small conveniences and supportive enhancements this app provides. And there’s more! Google Jamboard provides a great spot for students to brainstorm and sort their thoughts through text and pictures. When you tap into the visual map of a Jamboard alongside the practical at-side reading and writing support of Read & Write, you create a place where students’ reading and writing can thrive.

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.
