Celebrating July 2022: Newsela resources for each weekday of the month

The Newsela Team
Jun 29, 2022

July is here and we know for most students that means school’s out for summer! But for those teachers leading summer school, or teaching in year-round schools, Newsela has put together resources that can be used in the classroom throughout the month of July. For each weekday, teachers can find something to celebrate: a national ‘holiday’, a monumental day in history, or a topic that's of high interest to students. You'll find a corresponding Newsela article for each of those days, and on some days, a shared lesson from a Newsela Community member!  Teachers can also check out our Lesson Lab on Infusing Newsela's Daily Calendar Into Your Classroom for tips and tricks on how to build student engagement through these calendars.

Don't miss out on the Newsela Summer Workshops happening from July 11-20! Uniquely designed for both teachers and administrators, you’ll walk away from these free, hands-on sessions with solutions to navigate today’s biggest classroom problems.
