Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

As a revision strategy, students can read drafts of essays and other documents out loud into Seesaw. Students use the microphone to record their reading. Listening to their recording helps them catch errors/awkward word choice, and helps them improve their document’s sentence fluency. By adding their essays to Seesaw, connected parents and family members can listen in, too! This works perfectly when you have assigned an essay or other writing assignment that students are completing.
