It is our pleasure to share with you the upcoming training sessions for using Google Read&Write, which offers literacy support for students in their reading, writing, understanding and organization. We are offering sessions for beginners, those who have some experience with the tools, and sessions for those who are quite knowledgeable. 

Please share this information with BC First Nation school staff members who may be interested or who are working with students who may benefit from the use of Google Read and Write.

The flow of these sessions can be seen in more detail in the diagram/check list that follows.

Please review this and see where is the most appropriate place for you to begin. (Part A, Part B, Part C and/or a Drop-In session).

If you are starting with Part A please sign the following Educator Consent form and email it to: crystala@fnesc.carosiec@fnesc.ca and robertat@fnesc.ca.

If this is the first time your school will be using Google Read&Write, please ensure that your principal is in agreement and ask them to email their confirmation to Rosie Caputo rosiec@fnesc.ca and myself, robertat@fnesc.ca .

We will be offering two types of sessions based on participants’ technology comfort level. Please do the following survey to help us to match the Google Read&Write training to your needs.

After we have reviewed your survey results, we will send details for how to join the Zoom sessions.
