How I Use It
This resource can be placed anywhere within a lesson. It can be used to introduce a topic or to provide more knowledge about the subject. Teachers will pick the standard they are teaching and multiple clips hosted by NBC anchors will appear. To help reinforce the standard teachers view several clips on the topic. This site is a supplemental element for teaching instruction.
My Take
I LOVE the newsela site!! I will use it as a component for every standard. I holds the students attention and engages their interest on the subject. The only time consuming aspect of the site is the viewing. The teacher can spend hours searching for the clip that has the information they are wanting to relay.
