Find Easy to Read Text for Lower Levels | The School Aranda links and loves | Scoop.it

Twurdy is actually based on Google, but it analyses Google results for readability, so it can help you to find more lower level texts for learners without you having to read through every result from Google to see if it's simple enough.

 

What a tool for saving your time and work with mixed ability classes!!!
