As teachers, we all know what it’s like to spend hours searching for current event articles that align with a great unit or lesson. Even more frustrating is finding that perfect news article, only to realize it’s beyond the reading level of our students.
Big History Project is excited to announce that Newsela has just launched unit-aligned daily news articles for Big History! Simply click here to access a variety of articles, all aligned to BHP’s units. Even cooler, each is leveled across five different Lexile levels.
Newsela is an innovative site that builds reading comprehension for all students by providing free daily news at five different reading levels. This is not the first time the Big History Project has worked with Newsela. In fact, Newsela leveled many of the BHP articles you already know and love.
