Newsela

Description: 

Newsela takes articles and current events from its partner news sources and modifies them so that students can read them more easily (options for different lexile levels). There also opportunities to assign to students and add questions. 

What We Like: 
  • Ability to differentiate for students at different reading levels while not sacrificing topic/content
  • Pre-created text sets
Classroom Application: 
Use as an "article of the week" with students
Current events news source
