Students have been working diligently on writing all about the Engineering Design Process and how they applied it to our problem pertaining to "Windy Island". Students began writing their drafts, following their informational writing checklist, and making revisions. Next, they moved on to the new (to them!) task of typing their essays.
After students did MANY revisions to their typed papers on Google Drive, that they accessed through Google Classroom, they had their peers edit their papers. After peer editing, students then listened to their papers read aloud to them on the computer with the help of Read and Write for Google. This really helped the students hear their words, and listen for any incorrect grammar, and helped them self edit their writings.
