By now, you’ve probably heard some mumblings about Texthelp and our newest product g(Math), a tool that is making math digital. You may be saying to yourself, “But I thought Texthelp was all about tech for reading and writing?” And we were. Until John McGowan, the developer of g(Math), joined the team and we added math to our portfolio.

Last month, we hosted a free webinar featuring Vicki Davis, author of the CoolCatTeacher Blog, during which she shared her recommendations for the 15 Best Tools for G Suite for Education Users.
Over the last year we’ve introduced dozens of updates (both small and large) to Fluency Tutor for Google to help students and teachers get the most out of the friendly Chrome app. This includes things like comprehension questions, data exporting, more reading levels, easier ways to purchase, and more.
If you’ve used Fluency Tutor before, you probably know that it comes with nearly 500 reading passages out of the box. All free and sortable by Lexile level or reading age. In addition, there are student and teacher share extensions that allow you to create a Fluency Tutor passage from any Google Doc or web page.
