How I Use It
This is an easy to use resource that allows everyone in the class to read the same article at their readability level. Its easy for both the teacher and the students. Click a button, change the lexile level. Some of the articles come with quizzes and standards. Articles can be assigned by the teacher or students can search for the articles.
My Take
I absolutely love this website. Its free, user-friendly and can be used right away. This is the most popular resource that I've ever shared with other teachers and with students!
