Join the “Read-an-Article-a-Day” Initiative

readanarticleIn an interesting article posted on January 21, 2016, Elfrieda H. Hiebert, a reading educator, recommends that schools get on-board with the “Read-an-Article-a-Day” initiative led by the Readworks.org. He explains why reading is necessary, when to read, how to read, and where to find reading material. He suggests some sites that offer useful articles such as:

Readworks.org which “offers around 2,000 articles (with new articles added frequently) that range from Grades K through 12.”

Commonlit.org which “is a relatively new site. As of mid-January 2016, there are 16 themes, each with a set of 3-4 articles for 4 grade levels (5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12).”

TextProject which “has three types of articles aimed at students in grades 2 through middle school:”

FYI for Kids which has “approximately 90 informational articles;’

Talking Points for Kids which offers “sets of articles on 10 topics (e.g., Heavy Backpacks);:

SummerReads  which offers “sets of several articles on 21 topics (e.g., Bikes and Boards).”

BeginningReads which is “a program aimed at K-2 students with 12 short articles at each of 10 levels.”
