☀☀☀☀ Newsela teaches news literacy by providing journalism tailored to an individual’s reading level. The news starts at around a fourth-grade reading level and goes up to a Lexile level of more than 1300 (roughly college level). There are optional quizzes to check a student’s  comprehension. Newsela was praised for its ability to cover the 2016 presidential election in terms young students could understand. Journalists can use this tool to promote news literacy in the schools. (And to understand different reading levels). — Hailey Koebrick
