How I Use It
I have used ReadWorks passages to deepen understanding of science and social studies content. I have used them whole group, as well as in small groups and in centers. Leveled passages help meet students' individual needs. I love the multiple choice and open ended questions to check for understanding. I've also used the paired passages which are wonderful for to prepare students for standardized testing in reading.
My Take
ReadWorks is a great online tool for reading comprehension resources. It has a great variety of leveled high interest fiction and nonfiction articles. I love the question sets that are featured with some articles. This could be improved by adding reading passages based on current events. Overall, this is a great resource for educators!
