Creating a class

Creating a class

In this article, we outline how teachers can get students registered for Newsela classes. There are three main ways. As a teacher, you should only use one of the following methods:

  • Creating a class in Newsela
  • Importing a class from Google Classroom
  • Syncing a class through a Single Sign-On Provider

Read below to find the class creation method that is relevant for you.

Creating a class in Newsela

Teachers can create as many classes as they need. Students must log in to their own Newsela accounts to join the class.

  1. Log in to your Newsela account.
  2. Hover over your name in the Search and Navigation bar at the top and choose CLASSES.
  3. Type your class name, select a grade, then click Add Class.
  4. For additional tips on how to get your students started once you create a class, check out our Quick Start Guide for Students.

Creating a class with Google Classroom

If you use Google Classroom, you can now import your Google Classroom classes to Newsela and share articles with your students. For directions on adding a class to Newsela from your Google Classroom, see Import Google Classroom to Newsela.

Creating a class with Single Sign-On Providers
