We are facing an issue with student reading skills. Our students are frequently behind multiple grade levels in reading. Reading ability only improves through practice and targeted intervention. Most students who refuse to read cite length and complexity as the major drawbacks to reading books. Newsela has standards-based quick articles and quizzes that can give students the opportunity to practice with challenging, yet accessible texts that can be adjusted, annotated, and provide instant feedback. The other advantage is that we get the data that can be shared with teachers to plan other targeted interventions.
