My students are required to do AOWs (Articles of the Week). Recently, I switched to letting them choose which articles they'd like to read from Newsela.com. In order to keep them growing, and checking out articles outside of their comfort zone, I created this sheet which asks them to choose a different category weekly.
Students turn the sheet into me when they digitally submit their article, so I know that it's time to login and grade it.
Please feel free to give me any feedback, as this is my first time using this in my classroom!
