With our new Paired Texts feature, your students can practice gathering and analyzing information across multiple sources. Each Paired Text includes two Newsela articles that share some sort of link in topic or theme. Along with the articles, you'll find a writing prompt that requires students to pull evidence from both texts, explain their thinking, and form a conclusion. These prompts align nicely with any Common-Core based rubrics that require students to cite and explain evidence in a written response. We hope our Paired Texts help your students get even more out of their Newsela assignments.
