Date: 2/14/2022 Time: 12:00-1:00 Location: internet Type: Webinar


The rumors are true!  Texthelp and Don Johnston have merged to become the world’s largest AT company.

SETC has invited Nora Trentacoste and Dave Butler to share ways to offer choice for all learners with a range of literacy supports. Join us to find out how Snap and Read, Co-Writer, and Read&Write enhance access and expression for students.  We’ll explore some model lessons as well as quick tool overviews.  

 This session will provide an opportunity for both discussion and questions, so be ready with your questions!

Learning Objectives: You’ll learn more about how to support all of your students so they can personalize their learning experience with any content area and any text, using the curriculum you already have in your toolkit.

Resource Links:  

Read&Write is free for teachers.  Please download your trial on our Read&Write page and register for free educator access with your

district email.  You’ll also get access to free features of OrbitNote; you

Be sure to have

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