Miami Dade - Summer Reading Clubs on Newsela

500x300-Learning-and-Support.jpg

The school year may be ending, but Miami-Dade students can still access Newsela on their own all summer long to keep their reading skills sharp.

Students who join Summer Reading Clubs will receive ten assigned articles about the topic of the club they join. The summer 2017 club topics include Sports, Technology, and more. Students who complete the quizzes for all 10 articles by August 31 will receive a shareable completion certificate at the end of the summer. 

Instructions for Participating in Summer Reading Clubs

Here’s how Summer Reading Clubs work:

  1. Make sure that all students have Newsela accounts. Students who do not yet have Newsela accounts can register by going to Newsela.com and clicking “Join” (students under 13 will need the assistance of a parent or teacher).
  2. Students join a reading clubs by going to the Club Link or entering the Club Code on their settings page. You can find all Club Links and Club Codes below, and students can join more than one club.
  3. When students join a club, they will receive ten articles on the club topic as assignments in the Binder tab of their Newsela accounts.Assignments will appear in students' Binders before the end of May. Students should read all 10 articles before the first day of school. We recommend that you also encourage students to take the quizzes that come with each article to check for understanding.
  4. Students can access Newsela from a home or library computer, or they can access their reading club articles from the iPhone and Android app.

Information for Parents

To share this information with students and parents, add this explanation to your summer reading letter or information page and modify as needed:

For summer reading, our school is using Newsela.com, an online reading platform with high-interest nonfiction articles at multiple reading levels. Newsela can be accessed on an internet browser or by downloading the Newsela app from iTunes or from the Google Play store (if students have limited internet access, they can read offline with those apps). Students who do not already have Newsela accounts can sign up by going to Newsela.com and clicking “Join” (students under 13 will need the assistance of a parent or teacher).

Students should join one of the following reading clubs by going to the Club Link or entering the Club Code on their settings page. They will then see 10 assigned articles, and should read all of them before the first day of school. We recommend that you also encourage students to take the quizzes that come with each article to check for understanding.
