Are you taking advantage of all that Newsela has to offer? Newsela offers five levels of differentiation for each article and adds new articles almost daily. Join this workshop to learn about the variety of multiple Newsela online tools that can help you design meaningful learning experiences for both your in-person and remote learners. You’ll also have the opportunity to share with your colleagues about new ways to use Newsela and develop a plan for using it throughout the year.
