A fellow TIS

shared this site as a favorite resource item at our recent meeting. News in Levels provides news stories of current events students can read in three different levels introducing new and/or reviewing vocabulary. I also thought this site could be helpful to middle school and high students as a writing activity. The upper level students could rewrite a story sharing the information in levels, for example: level of a reader for third grade, seventh grade, and a classmate. Check the site out here at If anyone would like to take the opportunity to try this activity, please let me know. Lisa Alfred and I would love the chance to work with you and your students and this site!
