Feel the love from Mississippi educators and surrounding districts

"Newsela is a powerful teaching resource. This easy-to-use platform provides teachers and students with access to fiction and non-fiction texts of varying complexities. Activities may be hosted on the website or printed for easy use. The text is aligned with many national core reading series (including Journeys, which we purchased last school term), features writing instruction support, and includes vocabulary instruction support. Resources are available for second-grade through twelfth-grade (2nd-12th) ELA, science, and social studies. This is supported by reporting, data tracking, and professional development. The platform has a growing bank of texts and access for kindergarten and first-grade."

"Our teachers were already using the free version of Newsela and loving it. As a result, when funds recently became available we decided to invest in premium Newsela accounts for all of our teachers. We wanted to unlock all of the wonderful resources that are not available in the free version. With a renewed focus on literacy skills development in our district, Newsela will provide valuable resources to support our literacy goals. Our teachers are excited to learn more about what Newsela can do for their students and the customer service has been outstanding."
