How I Use It
I used this website with various populations. My low-level special education students were able to use the readings with accompanying materials as part of their alternate state assessment. It took the guesswork out of grading and keeping their data. The vocabulary section benefitted both my lower readers as well as my ELL students. One part that I really like is the feature where it will read the text out loud. I have a few students with significant reading disabilities and this enables them to access the same reading as their peers.
My Take
I absolutely love Readworks. It is a resource that all educators should have access to.
