How I Use It
I use it for students to read the same interesting article on their own lexile level.
My Take
It is awesome. The teacher is able to assign them what articles to read to reinforce content covered in class. The students then are able to read the article on their level. So everyone reads about Grizzly Bears but some have easier vocabulary in their reading. BUT, the pages look the same (graphics/titles/ect) No signaling out anyone. The quiz at the end is then level appropriate and can be used for a grade. Absolutely love this program.
