User Comments

ReadWorks is an excellent tool for all teachers. I use it with my ELLs and my students with special needs. I urge all my colleagues to use it because there is no need to scaffold or differentiate. Everything is done for you already! I am so grateful to have discovered this "teaching made easy!!!'

I can't say how helpful Readworks has been in my social studies class.
