Are you wondering how to integrate Newsela content and resources into your classroom instruction? In this workshop, we will review effective practices for designing and integrating digital assignments that support academic engagement with Newsela reading content. Working within Newsela, we will examine instructional practices for leveraging multiple levels of a text to support student learning that is focused on a common goal.


    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • Educators who are new to Newsela
  • Educators with experience using Newsela who would benefit from a deeper dive into the platform and its resources

In this session, Newsela Professional Learning Specialist Alyssa Lipuma will walk you through the process of exploring, building, and working within your Newsela account to integrate digital literacy experiences that are appropriate for your students.
