This would be a great article for small group discussions about text complexity. It's so much more than lexile levels!

Excellent resource for articles for your classroom!  Students can adjust their reading level by lexile, which allows you to assign one article, differentiate instruction, and not stigmatize a student with a lower reading level! You can create a class binder, give students an access code, and track the quizzes they take.  Or assign a certain number of articles and let students choose their own articles on topics that interest them.  I think this is the best resource for informational text I've seen in 2013!

Amy Stoeckly's curator insight, October 21, 2013 3:22 PM

AMAZING website-You have to check this one out!  Something for everyone here: Science, current events on all kinds of topics, social studies, culture and more!  What's more to love: you can adjust the lexile (reading level) , some come with worksheets or assessments, and you can save these in your teacher binder. With this FREE account you can email these articles out to students to read as homework and have them come to class ready to discuss.

“When you are able to read closely you are doing three things at once:

Lens – What am I looking for? (examples:  text evidence, word choice, structure, figurative language)Patterns –  What patterns do I notice?  (Not to pick out one just one word, but to look across the text to determine ‘What does the author tend to do?’)Idea -What is the big idea that this author is writing about?   (not just confirm previous thinking)”  (Kate Roberts, 6/26/2013, Teachers College Writing Institute)

After seeing Mrs. Sike's excellent K-5 handouts for teachers here <http://mrssikes.wordpress.com/2013/08/10/collaboration-with-common-core-state-standards>, I decided to make something for my 6th grade ELA teachers. Feel free to copy and adapt!
