Can students have their own logins so they can access stories on their own? Is there a way for the teachers to monitor this that is similar to Newsela?

Hello there! Recently, ReadWorks launched its new digital platform, digital.readworks.org. On this new digital platform teachers can search our library of articles and their corresponding curriculum, assign them digitally to students, and see student results. Students on their end will be able to view their assignments, complete them digitally, and see their results. As an educator, you should be able to use the same username and password you have for www.readworks.org to sign up for digital.readworks.org. You can add students to your class on the site by either rostering them or inviting them to login with their Google accounts. Hope that helps. Happy teaching!

These are great passages.

This looks like a great resource for helping kids learn to read and answer questions. The passages are interesting as well as informative.

These passages are excellent for ESOL 1 students.
The students will not only learn some history about this country through them but develop their reading skills as well.
Thanks for sharing.
