Read & Write for Google: MCPS has purchased a group of subscriptions to a powerful assistive technology package of tools called Read & Write for Google. Read & Write for Google is a web based extension on the Chrome Browser that is free to all teachers and fee-based for students. This powerful tool is used in the Chrome Browser only and integrated with GAFE. It supports students with written content available on the Internet and provides tools for reading and writing on Google Docs, websites, PDFs and epub files. Students who have subscriptions to Read & Write for Google will be able to use the tool at home and school on devices that can access a web browser including Chromebooks.
Staff can sign up for a free teachers account using the link on the right side of the page. When asked for your email, please use your GAFE email address (mcpsmt.org). When asked for an administrator's name, please use Theresa McGeary, email email@example.com.
Currently there is a block of subscriptions that are designated for students who have IEPs, 504s or who are designated as Gifted or ELL. To request a subscription for a student, please click on the link on the right and fill out the form. If you have a student you feel will benefit from Read & Write for Google, but does not fit any of the above categories, or if you have any other questions about Read Write for Google please contact Theresa McGeary, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
