Five Reasons to Use Newsela

All faculty now have free access to Newsela, a website chock full of leveled reading materials. Signing up is as easy as entering your LaGuardia email address and choosing a password. This wonderful resource could be used in class, in the computer lab or as homework. Have you used it yet? If so, leave a comment and share your experiences.

1. Create differentiated reading lessons
Newsela allows you to assign the same reading to a class of learners at five different levels. Print the readings out, or read them in a computer lab or on phones in the classroom.The class can all discuss the same topic, based on their leveled reading.

Student Services Tomorrow!

There are two student-service related meetings tomorrow at 12:45pm. Day teachers, please share with your students.

Students in the intermediate and advanced levels who wish to improve their English speaking and listening can serve as volunteer math tutors in our Skills Exchange program. This is a great way for our students to meet college students, to share their knowledge, and to work on their conversational English. Nursen will hold an informational meeting tomorrow.

Yvette will meet with students in the Media Center to help students with their CUNY Online Applications.
