Customer Reviews

Newsela Makes Current Events in the Classroom Accessible for All!

Newsela is both an excellent resource for accessing high-interest content on a variety of reading levels and a vehicle for bringing current events into the classroom. Quizzes, writing activities, annotations for teachers are all excellent tools to help support student learning and streamline the data-collection process for the educator.

So relevant

My students connect so much with the content of these articles because they are updated so regularly and the news is so current. It also gives the opportunity to be transparent with students about their reading level so that they become more invested in their progress.

Engaged students

This website is awesome. My students love the articles. They have wished our required daily reading curriculum was as interesting!! Very well done.
