New News ELA app!

News ELA just announced their new app!  

I have begun to incorporate the News ELA site into my class more often this year to allow students to read about current events in science.  They're not just good for science though because they have wonderful collections for all topics, including collections (text sets) for social studies, literature and even in Spanish!  My favorite part about News ELA is that I can provide the same article to all of my students but adjust it for various reading levels as needed.  They don't lose the main content of the article and can gain confidence reading.  

The latest announcement of their app makes it even easier to read articles and assign them for your classes. 

Read the email announcement:
Dear Valued Educators,
I’m thrilled to announce the launch of the Newsela iOS app, and with it, offline access to our entire article library. Finding and assigning articles has never been easier. And we’ll notify your students and keep you informed as they get to work.
If we can get this done in the first three weeks of the year, imagine what we’ll do in the next forty-nine. Stay tuned.
Yours in reading,
Dan Cogan-Drew
Co-Founder & Chief Product Officer
