"Newsela brings the world inside of a classroom in a way that is accessible for students! It's easy for a teacher to tell students, but showing is much harder. Authentic texts that bring science to life are invaluable."
"The ease of finding articles based on a specific science subject or standard was amazing. No more hunting for articles related to a standard through key words. Even in-depth articles that I needed on topics like the flow of matter and energy through ecosystems."
"Newsela is also used to provide the students with knowledge of an event so that they are able to contribute to whole group lessons/discussions."
"Finding the right content to meet all these standards parameters and building quality instruction around it is challenging and massively time consuming. With these new subject-specific products, Newsela just made this attainable for all and in a reasonable amount of time!"
"The accessibility of the text at five different levels was by far the most meaningful for us! Students could choose articles at five different reading levels, which wasn't always offered for Social Studies texts. They could engage with the text at a level that allowed them to grow as independent readers comfortable and actively participate in class discussions and writing experiences."
Teachers get to pick the content that works best for their students. School and district leaders rest easy knowing it’s all vetted and aligned to standards. It’s a win-win.
