Read closely. Think critically. Be worldly.
Newsela is a free website that provides news for students. It is geared to students in grades 4 - 12 and will help students build close reading and critical thinking skills in non-fiction reading comprehension. Articles are written at multiple levels of compexity. It appears that the levels begin around 690 and go up to just over 1200.
Each article has a quiz (aligned to Common Core) allowing you to quickly see if your students are on track.
And last there are great teacher tools. You may assign articles, review student quizzes and track Common Core mastery.
Students can use it without registering by clicking "No Thanks" and can select different Lexile versions of the same article.
