Read&Write for Google Docs is a cool extension I found on Web App Reviews that can benefit ELLs and struggling readers. The extension provides you with a special toolbar on the top of your Google documents.
Here is the list of tools your students can use:
- Picture dictionary
- Play, pause, and stop text-to-speech (choice of male or female)
- Fact Finder (Google search results of highlighted a word or phrase)
- Collected Highlight (sort highlights by color or position)
