Full course description
2.5 PD Hours
Teachers in this course will have an opportunity to learn what Newsela is and how to best use articles written at 5 different reading levels with their elementary students. This course is applicable for any elementary teacher (though, mostly Gr. 2-6) who wants to learn how they might use Newsela in any of their instruction, whether it is Social Studies, Science, ELA, SEL, or more!
Any 2nd through 5th-grade teacher wanting to learn more about how Newsela works. Kindergarten and First-grade teachers are welcome to attend, but likely use Newsela in their classrooms significantly less. Secondary teachers hoping to attend may be put on a waitlist. Priority enrollment will be given to 2-6 teachers, but secondary could be enrolled with the understanding that examples will be aimed at 2-6. Email email@example.com with questions.
This presentation will be led by Ms. Brittany Boyd and/or Ms. Taylor Stokes, learning specialists from Newsela. If you have questions about this course, please click here to contact the instructor.
