How I Use It
I have used this site to support my instruction of non-fiction reading and writing. I love that there are so many options on the site: Lesson plans, quizzes, student opinion area! The downfall is that there is SO much on the site, it can be overwhelming.
My Take
I used this site in the past and have recently been reintroduced to it. I like it because it is authentic news for students to read, engage with, and reflect upon. I think that materials on this site could be used for grades below 7th.
