Writing supports such as templates and graphic organizers will be shared in the Outschool classroom before class.  Please download them if possible because they will provide support for your student’s' writing.  I will also share them in Google Doc form if possible to further support students with dyslexia and dysgraphia who prefer to type or use voice to text.  Blank paper, pens, and colored markers and pencils can be helpful to have on hand if your teen wants to be creative.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students may be using Google Docs and  Google Jamboard to record and share their ideas.  These are COPPA Compliant Resources.
Teacher developed templates of graphic organizers using the Google Docs format.
