If you would like to evaluate a practice test, then determine how you can implement the verbage into your classroom, there is a template for that as well. The offer is always on the table if you would like to team up to tweak, re-word, or re-vamp your current tests!!

Text sets using NEWSELA

Text sets are a great way for students to examine a common theme or topic multiple ways and across various texts. In addition, adding in a video clip, song, or picture book can enhance the text set to reach multiple learning styles! Sometimes we don't always know how to get started, but NewsEla offers a great place to start! BONUS: you can change the lexile level of these articles to reach all reading levels! Can we say INCLUSION!!!??
