Writing in Math and Science

Clear Target: We will use Discovery Education resources and tools to create writing tasks in math and science classes.

Discovery Education
  • Discovery Education allows students to write in response to a text, article, graphic, or image on the computer.
  • Discovery Education allows teachers to create and save writing prompts and share with other teachers.
  • Discovery Education allows teachers to read student responses, comment on their response, and submit their comments back to the students.
