It's current events for kids, and you can change each article to reflect multiple Lexile levels. Amazing! I just registered and haven't used it with my students yet, but I plan to.
I'm continuing to plan for NCTE, but it's getting harder with report cards looming. Hoping to see many of you there!

|Teachers need to use more non-fiction to meet the Common Core and PARCC, but many are not sure how to use informational text to promote critical thinking.
