User Comments

Thank you. This helps incorporate reading.

How wonderful this resource is! Thank you so much!

I also suggest placing the NGSS standards on the standards page.
Question ???? Is there a chance some of these articles can be translated to other languages? Spanish, Polish and Arabic are a must in my community.
Thanks

Thanks for your question. We do not currently provide any content in another language. At this time, there are no immediate plans to translate our content into other languages. It is also important to share that the research-based instructional practices reflected in ReadWorks, such as explicit instruction and the gradual release of responsibility, are best practices for teaching English Language Learners. It is also especially important for ELLs to expand their base of general background knowledge through the non-fiction reading passages and articles.

The content of the reading is good, thank you.

I love the articles and the exercises, please add more chemistry articles such as on acid bases, metals in gems, metals (good/bad), nuclear energy etc.

I referred my whole school to this site, thought it was very comprehensive and covered most content areas. Love it!

Just a suggestion to the website. It would be nice if you linked the NGSS standers to the lessons!!!

Yes, please! NGSS are a must!

Thank you so much!! Loved it.

thank you That's wonderful

Oh my goodness, I love this site. Thank you for identifying the lexile levels! Why don't more sites go ahead and do that. In the selection I just downloaded, the questions are great, and you have included several written-response sections--so important. You have a fan and a donor. Thank you!

This is a wonderful resource. Thank you

This is wonderful material to help some of my struggling students. The content and questions format is well developed!
