Students in Middleton have been introduced to the Google Chrome app, "Google Read & Write". Read & Write supports student literacy and writing through technology. There are many features in this program that benefit students by improving reading and writing confidence.
In computer class, students in 3rd - 6th grade were introduced to the highlighting tool. This tool allows students to highlight text, either in a Google Document or on a website, and capture those highlights into a new Google Doc. The information that is captured is also cited. This feature is great for research. While showing students this feature, we were able to have another discussion about plagiarism.
