How to increase student participation in the Kevin Quinn Climate Change Reading Challenge

Want to increase your students' participation in the Kevin Quinn Climate Change Reading Challenge, but not sure how? Here are some suggestions to get your students involved.

Read Newsela articles together:

Increase student participation by having students read articles in partners, trios, or groups. Students can work together on one device to read the article and answer quiz questions.

Assign articles for homework:

Newsela works great on phones, tablets, and computers. Assign articles and quizzes to your class for homework to increase the number of points each student earns.

Centers/Timed activities:

Use only a few devices during independent work time so that a small group of students can read Newsela articles independently. If time is limited, print differentiated articles in advance and have students complete the quiz during this independent work time. 

Read Newsela articles with your buddy class:

Does your school have a buddy class with younger or older readers? Have students in each class partner together to read the articles. This helps younger readers advance and more advanced readers improve their fluency and reading comprehension skills.
