How I Use It
ReadWorks has a huge data base of reading resources. All the resources I have encountered so far have been relevant and grade level appropriate. The passages are fiction and nonfiction based on a variety of topics and levels. They also offer novel studies which includes lesson plans, student handouts, vocabulary practice, comprehension practice, assessments, etc. That alone is a valuable resource. Furthermore, it is all free!
My Take
I love this teaching tool. We have limited reading resources to teach Common Core and to supplement other subjects with reading passages. I love the various levels, practice pages, reading passages, and ease of use. It helps students by increasing their depth of knowledge on a topic or subject. It helps my teaching by giving me another valuable, useful resource to use in my classroom.
