Product Description
If you're like me, you love to use NEWSELA to infuse current events into the classroom. Articles are differentiated for a variety of readers and you can easily print articles so students can annotate their work. I've noticed over the years, however, that students get easily discouraged by the fact that there are only 4 questions in the quizzes, which makes it really easy to perform poorly if you miss only 1 question. I wanted to invest students more in the annotation process, which I firmly believe pushes comprehension and usually leads to higher quiz results. For this reason, I created this cover sheet. I attach it to all articles. It clearly outlines how students will be graded for NEWSELA articles, with 80% of the grade depending on the annotations (Imagine that! Kiddos getting more credit for work in order to focus less on the "right answers"). Students receive credit for four areas: (1) Use of symbols (we have an annotation guide which is also available in my product listings), (2) main idea written after each section, (3) each correction answer, and (4) a complete sentence explaining each answer choice. I hope this is useful for your classroom!
