English Teachers – how can we empower struggling readers and writers?

Thursday 2nd November 2023
3:45pm – 4:15pm GMT

How can we make the English curriculum more accessible and achievable for students who struggle with reading and writing, particularly for those who don’t qualify for 1-to-1 support?

In this session, we will explore how DocsPlus helps students to independently access Secondary English texts, organise their ideas, and supports them throughout the writing and editing process.

We will also highlight the library of ready-made vocabulary banks, writing frames and planning templates that English teachers can access, and show you ‘DocsPlus Analytics’, which gives you instant access to rich data on each student’s writing process.
