Why Does My Paper Have Red Squiggly Lines?
Composing and editing written material can be a difficult and frustrating process for many students with disabilities, especially as the demands continue to increase in middle and high school. Fortunately, many previously specialized tools are now built into word processing programs and available to all students as part Universal Design for Learning (UDL). For example, Microsoft Office 365 has tools such as Read Aloud, Dictate, and Editor easily accessible to help students in the writing process. We just have to teach students how to access and use these tools effectively. Come to this session to learn more about the various tools in Office 365 and for some ideas such as simple checklists and instructional videos to help your students find and use the tools independently.
