DESCRIPTION: Students with dyslexia/dysgraphia (and other print/learning struggles) can take control of their own learning needs to enhance their participation in classroom activities. Features such as word prediction, speech-to-text, text-to-speech, vocabulary support, study tools and PDF annotations will help students get ideas “unstuck” while staying focused and organized.

Also joining will be Texthelp who will team for a hands-on interactive session to learn about the Read&Write and OrbitNote literacy tools.  There’s no content in these toolbars-you’ll learn to get the most out of what’s already working for you.  We will give an overview of the tools and discuss different strategies that can be enhanced with Read&Write and OrbitNote support.

We will be covering strategies like:

  • Building on prior knowledge
  • Explicit Interactive Comprehension Strategies
  • Graphic Organizers
  • Bringing students into grade-level text with audio support
  • Vocabulary Building
  • Oral Reading Fluency
  • Adding Rigor and Interactivity to your content

Read&Write is free for teachers.  Please download your trial on our Read&Write page and register for free educator access with yourdistrict email.  You’ll also get access to free features of OrbitNote; youcan download your trial here.

Be sure to have Read&Write set up before our session so you have time to explore with us!
