My Take

It is not honest to say the whole site is free when it is not! I realize they need to make money, I just thought that Newsela was really digging in to help fragile, inner city learners.

How I Use It

My school has closed indefinitely. I have used Newsela to access the same articles on different levels. I went to the website and was so grateful when they said it is now free! I set up all classes and linked with googleclassroom. Called 82 homes to let them know that each student will be responsible for 2 articles a day. I just realized that you need to have pro to see which students have done the work. I am embarrassed and heartbroken.
