Text Sets and Collections are two ways that you’ll see articles organized on Newsela.

Text Sets: Groups of articles that share a common theme. You can create your own Text Sets or explore Text Sets created by other teachers and by Newsela editors.

Collections: Curriculum resources that contain content and instructional materials aligned to the scope and sequence for a subject.
