Chrome Extensions for Struggling Students

Google Read and Write will read text aloud on web pages as well as Google Docs.  Premium features allow for highlighting and notetaking as well as the creation of vocabulary lists and picture dictionaries from words that are identified within the text.  Teachers can have a FREE premium version. 

Readability helps to eliminate extra text and distractions on the page so that students can focus on the content.

BeeLine Reader uses a color gradient to guide your eyes from the end of one line to the beginning of the next.

Easy Reader will simplify a portion of a web page that you select.

Read with Magic Scroll declutters the web page and turns it into a scrolling book.

Google Docs Highlighter Add-On - Create and share custom highlighters that can be designated for specific categories.  Highlights can be exported to a separate document.
