When students read, they succeed.
However, visionary leaders and teachers know that current textbooks and teaching methods are not working — and students are falling behind.
If we can just help our students READ more, we can set them up for a lifetime of success.
Finding effective literacy platforms is hard.
Today’s educators often lack engaging and age-appropriate literacy resources to support their students. As a result, students are falling behind now, which can impact their ability to excel long after they graduate.

Academics' Choice Award Review
This app also has a teachers' guide that offers comprehension questions, writing prompts and discussion points. And to top it off (for all of you teachers out there) it is all aligned to the Common Core Standards. This has got to be one of the best, if not the best app for anyone who wants their child to learn more about what's going on in the world today. Needless to say, it is a social studies teacher's dream!
Jennifer Yeager, Educator at Black River Middle School
As a special educator, I am constantly looking for sites that will meet the diverse needs of my students as well as the entire school.
THIS IS THAT SITE! You can assign different reading levels to your students within the same article, the option to have the article read, and translation in four languages. Students have the option to write or draw their responses to the articles. AND this is finally a website where I can differentiate for my students while still giving them age-appropriate visuals. I AM OBSESSED!

News-O-Matic is a news source that we can trust. Students need to know what is going on in the world, in a way that doesn’t frighten them.
