Escritura+ is a set of games targeting specific Spanish-language writing skills for K-12 native and heritage speakers. Housed within a larger writing platform that BeeReaders is building, the tool will give students engaging ways to correct common writing errors and teachers data on student progress. Teaching and learning to write well takes time, and this tool eases the burden on teachers and empowers Spanish-speaking students to be confident, lucid writers in their home language.
