Working with adult beginning/low intermediate students
« on: May 09, 2021, 06:27:53 PM »
When working with adults, I have found it's very important to provide materials that are age-appropriate and of interest to them. One great resource that covers a wide range of reading levels and still provides adult-appropriate content is newsela.com. You can find news articles that have been adapted all the way to a second grade level there. Newsela also provides quizzes and vocabulary exercises to go with the articles, and you can create a free teacher account, sign your students up, and then assign articles and activities within Newsela's platform.


Another good, albeit less extensive, reading website for adults is https://www.readingskills4today.com/. This website has a variety of leveled passages written for adults with pre- and post- reading questions. I have used these in the past as basic assessments, since the readings are relatively short and the comprehension questions are simple and straightforward.
