How I Use It
I use this to locate current articles that are science based that enhances what we are studying in class. Students practice reading informational text and it is of high interest so students like the variety of articles. Using a focus question to guide them, students write about what they have read.
My Take
As we work across our curriculum to support reading, I can find a variety of articles of high interest that students become engaged in as they read and discuss with other students. It is sometimes difficult to locate articles of various reading levels but this site has great variety.
