In Newsela’s growing library of over 6000 articles, you can find many types of articles: current events, primary sources, topic overviews, opinion pieces, biographies, and more.

Each article is available at five reading levels, and new articles are published daily. Newsela’s articles come from premier content partners such as the Washington Post, Scientific American, and Smithsonian.com - at the MAX reading level, you’ll see the original article and the publication source.    

There are two main article categories: Library and News. Current events and opinion articles are in the News category. All other types of nonfiction are in the Library category. Browse topics within these categories or search within all articles. Searching allows you to filter for other aspects of articles (such as being available in Spanish or having a quiz that covers a specific reading skill).
