How I Use It
I use Newsela as a warm up in the classroom.
My Take
I wish I could give Newsela 5 stars because it is a great tool. However, it is extremely left-leaning with news and sometimes I have to dig for unbiased articles for my students because I don't believe in pushing a political agenda on them.
