Chromebooks are used for education purposes, right? Usually for math quizzes, AR, or even reading logs. There has never really been any major sites for language arts. Well, the Westminster Scool District has introduced a new Language Arts program called StudySync.

Ms. Walters states, “StudySync is our new curriculum for Language Arts and will often be used.”

When you first log into StudySync, there will be four dots. You must click them to get into your assignments and activities for that day. Many assignments include audio books, online worksheets, and perhaps even a Blast!

What is Blast you may wonder? Blast is an activity on StudySync that gives you a brief passage to read then asks you a question. The response to the question can only be 140 characters long. It also gives a quick survey related to the topic. The survey results will be revealed by your teacher after everyone is finished.

It also gives a quick survey related to the topic. The survey results will be revealed by your teacher after everyone is finished.

Once you are done responding to the questions, you can rate, using a blast rubric, up to ten randomized classmate’s entries. After that, the top-rated blast rises to the top for all to see. 

Did we mention there were printed stories as well? Yes, StudySync has booklets with the printed stories so students can follow along as the program’s audio function reads the story from the Chromebook. The printed version works great when highlighting and annotating.

StudySync is definitely helping out the Language Arts teachers. Hopefully, StudySync can help you study for your Language Arts tests.
