Thanks Steve!

Stevenson High School
September 3rd...Welcome Back!
Let's Take a Look at Newsela!
Once you have an account, you
"add a class"
and get
for each class.

The code will look something like this...

Post each of your hour's code on your white board...once your students create an account, they will need it.
If they already have an account, they simply need to log-on and
add your class
by typing in your code.

They should
create a new Newsela account for each teacher
Now that you have an account and your students are signed up...
choose an article and
it for your
students to read.

Articles that are assigned will show up in the student's virtual
they log into Newsela and choose your class.
Assigning Articles
Reading Levels
Newsela will automatically set the reading level to the grade
level that you assign to each class when you set it up.

As your students take quizzes, Newsela tracks your students'
individual scores and will adjust their reading levels accordingly.

That's pretty cool!

Students can change their reading level on their own.
There is also an opportunity to have your students answer a question to a
writing prompt
for each article. More about this later...
Other Cool Features
Students may then
read, highlight,
and most of the time take a
pre-created quiz
that corresponds with the article.....make sure you choose a light bulb article.
