This site can be used in MANY different ways. You can collaborate as a classroom and/or  a teacher can informally but reliably assess any particular skill being taught  in the classroom.


Teachers would need to create and share the Padlet link in advance. Students and teachers can insert pictures and files and text boxes. Example: “Choose a character in your independent/classroom reading. Identify a trait and give an example from the text to prove how your character exemplifies that trait.”

January 19th Newsela

Newsela is a great resource for ENGAGING and EXCITING nonfiction and current event articles written at multiple reading levels. You can use the resource just for the articles, to print or link to, or students can create accounts by entering your class code, and then you can assign specific articles for students to read and many articles also come with comprehension questions for students to answer. You can track their comprehension and areas of need through this process. You can also search for articles that cover different skills ( citing text evidence, claim and argument, main idea) to better target instruction.

Tween Tribune

Tween Tribune - Junior

Tween Tribune - Spanish

Pick an article for students to read. These articles are also available in multiple lexile levels, and include a “critical thinking” question at the end that can be utilized. There are a variety of topics and SPANISH content too! This website also has the ability to create student accounts where the students can read assigned articles and then comment on them.


However, it is mainly a wealth of engaging articles that can be used for a variety of purposes within your classroom.


As an example: ARTICLE OF THE WEEK.

Consider that this assignment/activity can be completed with any online resource, video, or otherwise. You can use this google docs file, or turn it into a google form, or have students create their own Article of the Week Google Doc notebook, OR have them create the template with paper and pencil  in notebooks they already use in class.
