How I Use It
Some articles are too tough for students to comprehend. When I have an article that I want my students to read for homework, the students are able to read the actual news article and then choose their own reading levels to compare what they thought the original article stated and then what it actual meant. Students can then take the quiz to test their comprehension.
My Take
I think this is a great teaching tool to help reach all levels of readers. I like that you can look at all the reading levels of the same article and compare and contrast the different articles.
