Throwback Thursday: NewsELA - Differentiate Reading for Your Students


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
