"The most robust, evidence-based
digital language acquisition solution"

Velázquez Press partners with Drawp for School to bring best in class content in Google Slides™

The Drawp for School add-on for Google Slides™ supports all students in building academic language and metacognition proficiency through everyday assignments. 

It incorporates research-based scaffolds that meet each student at their own proficiency level in each language domain, that seamlessly integrate with the sheltered instructional strategies that you already implement in your daily classroom instruction -all within Google Slides. By engaging students in practice through everyday assignments, it sets students on the road for reclassification and helps all students meet grade level standards.
