Very helpful to my student. Hard to find lesson geared towards older students, Terrific!

Thanks for the diagnostic tool that will help me help students.

Well done! Thank you. Now I'd like to see something about Trash Around the World and the Great Garbage Patch the size of Texas in our oceans for High School kids.

I echo everyone else's gratitude for high school level reading. So many sites provide materials only for elementary school and middle school.

I was looking for a rigorous back to school activity. Thank you Readworks for providing one. The lexiles are appropriate for higher grades.

Thanks for difficult passages.

Yes, please! More difficult passages for grades 11-12. This is a godsend!

i'm very glad for longer and more difficult passages and alos for higher grades; if possible for university students in foreign countries. Thank you Readworks.

I'm thankful that are new passages for higher grades.

I am grateful that there are now passages for higher grades with appropriate lexiles provided. Please keep these and the lessons coming !
