How I Use It
I love this website because all of their passages are already listed with Lexile level. You can search for a subject that matches an anchor text and have a cold read or assessment in minutes. I used the passages I found here to create a while unit on Water Pollution for a cross-curricular program. I think this would be great for non ELA teachers as well.
My Take
I think the website is easy to use and navigate. Is it easy to find the passages, and judge the level, since Lexile is already posted.
