"News ELA is an innovative way to build reading comprehension with nonfiction that's always relevant: daily news"


This is a free resource that was highlighted at last weekend's EdCampAccess Boston event. Articles are available from eight categories: war and peace, science, kids, money, law, health, arts, sports. The site is unique because it offers 5 different lexile reading levels for every article. In this way all students in the classroom can access the same content.


Additional tools include common-core aligned quizzes and one-click tools for assigning articles. Pro accounts track student data and provide collaboration tools.
