Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan (link is external) on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform (link is external).

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
