Reading literacy is key to many subjects, but I feel that reading literacy is especially important to Social Studies. Being able to sort and process, as well as synthesize, information is a vital skill for students to learn. With that said, take a look at some of the tools below that offer reading for the Social Studies classroom. Take a look at the resources I have included below, as well as in the article link.
Some tools that I have used in the past include:
- For Current Events
- News-O-Matic - https://newsomatic.org/
- Newsela - https://newsela.com/
- Scholastic Upfront (Requires Subscription) - http://upfront.scholastic.com/
