Commonlit

CommonLit is a collection of free texts for classrooms.

We believe in the transformative power of a great text, a great question, and a great teacher. That's why we collect texts that students love to discuss.

 

 

Here's how it works: Teachers identify texts that students love to discuss; We negotiate with the copyright holders; We sort the texts by Lexile level and qualitative measures of text complexity; We organize the texts by theme so teachers can use them in their lessons; We put everything online for free.

Teachers know their students best. That's why we created a flexible resource that works with whatever you're already teaching.
