“Newsela publishes high-interest news articles daily at five levels of complexity for grades 2-12 using Newsela’s proprietary, rapid text-leveling process. Common Core–aligned quizzes attached to articles give educators and parents insight into their students’ reading strengths and weaknesses. Newsela develops nonfiction fluency and critical-thinking skills necessary to master the Common Core standards for informational text.”
Newsela articles fall into eight categories: War & Peace, Kids, Science, Money, Law, Health, Arts, Sports
Teachers can assign articles to their entire class, or to smaller groups of students, for greater differentiation. Teachers have the option to select the level of the articles they to assign their students. Students who read articles independently of teacher assignments select their own levels.
Teachers can also create “text sets,” which are a collection of articles that share a common theme, topic, or standard. They may use sets created by Newsela as well. Reading articles within a text set helps students to build their vocabulary and background knowledge on a topic.
