Quick Start Guide for Write (Student)

If the article you're reading includes a writing prompt, you'll see the Write  icon in the Reading Level Bar.

Using Write

  1. Read the article and click Open Activities on the top-right corner of the article page.
  2. The Activities window appears on the right side. Click Write
  3. You can continue reading as you respond. If more than one of your classes uses Newsela, select a class for your response.
  4. Read the prompt and type your response. Newsela automatically saves your work so you can make changes later if needed.
  5. Click Submit Response. Once you click submit, you can only make changes to your response if your teacher sends it back for revision.

NOTE: If more than one class assigns the same article, you must respond to the prompt for each class separately.
