News in Levels – News in Levels is designed for English Language Learners (ELLs). Each day, the website features a news story in three different “levels.” Level 1 news stories use the 1,000 most common English words; Level 2 news stories use the 2,000 most common words; and Level 3 stories use the 3,000 most common words. Students can switch between levels while reading each news story, enabling them to start with more challenging texts and switch when needed. Each news story is also accompanied by a glossary and questions to facilitate a writing or speaking exercise.

Smithsonian Tween Tribute – Each news story is available in four lexile levels and in Spanish.
