Common Sense Education Review [5 stars]
CommonLit is a treasure trove of literary resources that teachers can use to build lessons that target students' reading needs. Use the robust search and filter tool to explore texts by themes like America, Education, Family, and Friendship, Prejudice and Discrimination, Resilience, and Growing Up. Or, search by genre or literary device. Looking for a specific grade or Lexile level passage? Use that filter. Need to pair it with an emerging or challenging text? Click the Paired Text tab. Teachers pressed for time can skip to the Text Set filter and select one of the 50 options organized by historical period or literary movement and find a variety of texts at a variety of reading levels -- news stories, articles, speeches, poetry, and short stories -- ready to use.
