How I Use It
I use Newsela to supplement my instruction in US History by connecting issues, conflicts, and themes that occurred in early America with social, political, or economic situations the nation now is facing. Newsela provides the different lexile levels and assists in meeting the language needs of all learners in my classroom.
This is a fantastic tool that all teachers should explore and utilize. The adjustable lexile level tool makes any article appropriate for each student. This is a huge benefit for classrooms that have advanced learners, grade level learners, below grade level readers, ELL students, and students with special needs.
