How I Use It
You can use Newsela to assign a single article without worrying about reading level. Students can engage with the content as a precursor to writing or discussion. You can also allow students to choose their own articles- no matter their interest, there are articles to read.
For over five years, this has been my go-to source for nonfiction articles. They've been adding text sets and primary and secondary sources across a wide range of topics. Newsela is a fabulous tool to connect classrooms with current events and challenging texts.
