We first shared NewsELA in a blog post by Evan Payne in February 2015. You can read Evan's original post here: http://goo.gl/zMwUlO
NewsELA is a great resource for leveled non-fiction articles. Teachers can create a free account/class and assign selected articles to students. Each article can be read at a variety of Lexile levels so all students can get similar information but at their own level. Articles also have writing prompt options and quizzes. Some are available with a Spanish translation.
Teachers can search for articles by keyword, category or text set. They can create their own text sets or choose from a variety of topics already curated by NewsELA. NewsELA also recently added Spanish Text Sets to their collection. For more information, check out their blog post about the update: http://goo.gl/YwmqHR
