Newsela Launches New Content Solutions to Strengthen ELA, Social Studies and Science Instruction
Products are designed to deliver on instructional standards for those core subjects while making learning more equitable, accessible, and consistent for all students.
NEW YORK, NEW YORK, January 8, 2019 – The leading instructional content platform Newsela today announced the launch of three new solutions to help educators better meet instructional standards across an increasingly diverse student population living in a rapidly changing world.
Newsela ELA, Newsela Social Studies, and Newsela Science take authentic, real-world content from the most trusted providers in the world, and make it ready for use in those classrooms.
Over two million teachers already rely on Newsela for fresh, always up-to-date content that engages students on topics they care about and adjusts reading levels based on individual students’ needs.
“In a world that doesn’t stand still, neither should the content we put in front of our students,” said Matthew Gross, the co-founder and CEO of Newsela. “All students should love to learn. So we should no longer tolerate content that doesn’t awaken excitement, evoke passion or inspire debate. But no two students are the same. So content must be personalized to their unique interests without leaving anyone stigmatized or left out of the conversation.”
These new products are everything teachers and students already love about Newsela, in addition to subject-specific content, activities, and instructional standards that give ELA, social studies, and science teachers all the content they need to build the background knowledge and critical skills called for in subject area standards.
“We’ve delivered content to 90% of U.S. schools that both teachers and students are wildly excited about. With these new products, teachers can always have the perfect text or unit at their fingertips to support the standards they’re covering that day, on a platform they already love using,” said Gross.
“The standards are the guides as to what needs to be taught. However, it is a challenge to generate exciting lessons around particular standards. It is important that providers create meaningful content that meet the curricular requirements of the state, as well as authentic and high engagement learning activities,” said Aldo Deodino, Academic Supervisor of Humanities, High Point Regional High School in New Jersey.
Newsela ELA, Newsela Social Studies and Newsela Science are available for immediate purchase. See Matthew Gross’ full statement on these new solutions here, or visit www.newsela.com/about to watch a demo or schedule time with our account team.
