  • Teacher of English for 24 years!

    By living loved 1990
    Articles are excellent! Students are thinking thoughts about other things beside rap, drugs, and sex. They are using their minds for a better society; therefore, caring for themselves and their families. Students have a right and a desire to be heard, because they are the future. I see the students who I taught how to read Shakespeare, Thoreau, Wordsworth, Hardy, John Donne, Shelley, T.S. Eliot... And hear their speeches...their platforms, and it makes me so proud that these early readings have fostered in them the desire and courage that they, too, can be effective leaders of good of our society. Students need a forum to begin venues where their thoughts can be formed...and led the greater good for others.
  • An amazing source of reading for students

    By Rawaz S.
    I’m quite convinced with having this app on my mobile! The most distinctive feature that distinguishes this app from the other apps related to the same field is that readers can adjust the articles with their language levels and understand the contents better, also, improve their reading skill with a higher level! Taking quizzes is also another helpful feature that allow you to assess your comprehensive skill. Keep going guys with progressing this app through this technological age. I appreciate your wonderful work.
  • This app is boring

    By bhsysbdjkc dhend
    As a student that likes to learn and read about the world this app doesn’t do a very good job. The quizzes are useless and the write is painful. The app always puts me on a lower reading level and I would like a challenge. I have been forced to use this app for three years and it has not increased my reading or English or vocabulary at all. Either that or teachers need to give kids some freedom on what the kid reads. Newsela counts on half of my English grade and that is why me and everyone is failing English. To me it creates stress and anxiety. I would also like to add that this does everything for the teacher, the teacher doesn’t do any work and I think I would learn better if the teacher teached it. Now when I come for extra help they don’t know what to do. I don’t get why people like it.
  • Great App, Small Problems

    By Jeff Bewinski
    I love this app. It’s a great app for kids to use to read the news. You can take quizzes and answer written questions. I only have one problem, every once in a while I will open the app and it says “Oops, We hit a snag! Please sign in again!” then the app freezes. I exit the app and go back in. I click sign in and then click Google. I sign in with my account and it starts to load. Then it glitches out and goes back to the sign in and sign up page. I have to re download the app and sign in. Otherwise, it’s a great app! 😀
  • really good

    By Ndjdbjdkkka
    I have been using Newsela for school for 2 years and it is a great way for teachers to let their students read news articles without bias in the articles and it’s just the straight information about that topic. Also, the article can quiz you at the end of your reading to give you a little challenge to make sure you were paying attention. You can choose the level of the article and the quiz to make it more or less challenging.
  • Need better support for teachers

    By KKC248
    Hello, As a teacher, using the browser to access and review student work is not very convenient. The browser view is limited and the pro binder tab takes up more than half of the screen. I have to turn my phone sideways to read their quiz scores, but even in doing so, the words are scrunched together and the layout becomes skewed. Please allow teacher access to the app like before or make adjustments to the mobile browser on Safari or Chrome. I’m a huge fan of Newsela and would really appreciate a more mobile access instead of having to rely on my desktop to access student data. Thank you.
  • Excellent resource for teachers!!

    By Super Tante!
    Newsela is a terrific resource for teachers who need to create a fair playing field for all learners. Using the variety of incredibly fascinating and contemporary leveled readers, teachers can differentiate instruction to meet the reading needs of all students. The text features lead students to believe they are all reading the same material...thanks for being so sensitive to the students' needs!!!!
  • Replying takes forever

    By ZekromFusion
    Great website but ..not a great app. Newsela does offer easy access to the quizzes and writing assignments , but when it comes to the replying and submitting your reply, it takes forever . Once you finish your reply you can press the X which exists you out or a downward arrow which just closes what you were replying , however you automatically delete what you were writing as if exit your reply . It’d be nice if there was a submit option after you finish your reply instead of finding a way how to do it online . Removing it also takes forever .
  • Good but could use an upgrade

    By Joaquin the Axolotl
    This app is really good, I use it constantly in class, but I really want to see a multitasking feature. I have to do summaries for an English class, and using google docs without covering half the article would be nice. But it is a really good app. I recommend you download it if you are a teacher. In an English class. Or something.
  • Great concept but crashes too often

    By Asdfghjyui
    The app is built on a great concept, and has many great articles. However, their development team operates poorly which ruins the overall customer experience. There are so many bugs both the app and the website that makes the service crashes often, sometime even not able to login! The user experience is poorly designed too. I still don't know how to correctly register my kids to the service. I hope the team can set a higher standard on the quality of the app and the customer experience.
