Newsela

Newsela provides daily news articles from top national and regional newspapers, all written at five reading levels. Initially targeting grade 3-12 classrooms, Newsela automatically gives each reader the level of an article that’s just right for his or her reading ability, while empowering them change levels with a single click. Embedded quizzes track students’ reading process and mastery of Common Core standards. Customized analytics sent to teachers and students provide actionable insights designed to improve reading ability.

Newsela is a winner of the Gates Foundation Literacy Courseware Challenge. Almost 4,000 schools in 50 states and 52 countries have registered for Newsela since its June 2013 launch.

We built Newsela for the 20mm U.S. students in grades 3-12 who will never be able to understand college-level textbooks, 90mm Americans reading at a basic or lower level, 1 billion English language learners globally, and anyone who has ever struggled to understand the content they want to read.
