Get started with Canvas on Newsela

To access Newsela through Canvas, you’ll first need to make sure your school or district has set up access via the Canvas administrator settings. Please refer your administrator to our guide here.

Once your administrator has set up access in Canvas, logging on is simple! The first time you try logging into Newsela from Canvas, please follow these steps:

  1. Log into Canvas.
  2. From the Dashboard or Courses, click on one of your classes.
  3. After you click on one of your classes, look to the left sidebar. At the bottom, you’ll see a link to Newsela. Click that, and you’ll be taken to the Newsela login page.
  4. On the Newsela login page, you may be asked if you have an existing Newsela account.
    If you don’t have an existing account, click NO and a new account will be created for you. If you have one, click YES and follow the on-screen instructions to connect your existing Newsela account to Canvas.
  5. Once your account is connected, you’ll be able to log in to Newsela directly from Canvas by clicking the Newsela button in any Canvas course.
