How I Use It
I search for reading passages on topics of interest, or that accompany paired readings with books in the classroom. To print all the great passages would require quite a bit of paper, however, when I need an additional reading for a class, more times than not I can find a passage on a topic that is being covered in an elementary or secondary classroom.
My Take
I'm continually impressed with the variety of passages. Since I started using ReadWorks they have added additional passages for older students in grades 9-12 as well as added a wealth of readings for science and social studies topics. I wish there was a way to access more of the readings digitally to avoid printing, however, the ability to supplement class readings with ReadWorks makes it a great tool for producing running records or supplementing passages for struggling readers.
