Adding a co-teacher

Newsela loves co-teachers!

You can add a second teacher or co-teacher to any class. This allows you and another teacher to assign articles and monitor students’ progress.

  1. Go to the Classes tab of your Settings page.
  2. For the class you'd like to invite a co-teacher to, click the ENVELOPE icon.
  3. Enter the name or email or name of the teacher you'd like to invite. (Tip: Make sure they're registered and part of your school in Newsela first.)
  4. Check of the teacher's name, and click INVITE.

Note: Once you add a co-teacher, you cannot remove the co-teacher.


Adding a co-teacher via Google Classroom

If you co-teacher a class on Google Classroom, the easiest way to get connected to another teacher is to also import that classroom on the Classes tab of your Settings page.

Note: Make sure you select the same grade level during import, since it will be changed every time you import from Google Classroom. Similarly, if you remove the class, it will also be removed from your co-teacher's Newsela account.
