Introducing Units for U.S. History

We’re excited to announce Units, a new resource built into Newsela PRO. Our debut collection, U.S. History, includes 41 Units. Attached to each Unit is an overview, instructional suggestions and guiding questions. Within each, you’ll find familiar texts alongside current and unique content that you won’t find in textbooks, all grouped into three key Subtopic areas. At the Subtopic level, you’ll find a suggested sequence of articles and activities. Each activity comes with instructions so you can easily assign lessons. As with all assignments you make on Newsela, it’s easy to track student progress online so you can get all that paper clutter off your kitchen table.
