Online reading comprehension instruction tool that provides strategies and common core aligned lesson plans for teachers.

Overview

ReadWorks is a resource for reading passage and lesson plans for K-12 teachers. Texts include pre-made worksheets, quizzes, and other printable materials to enhance the lesson. ReadWorks is free for teachers to use.

GOALS

ReadWorks is an online resource of reading passages and lesson plans for students of all levels K-12. The company was founded with the goal of improving reading comprehension by bringing the latest in literacy teaching research into the classroom.

APPROACH

Teachers can easily create an account and immediately begin to search through ReadWorks’ texts. These texts include both fiction and non-fiction passages. Texts are sortable by keywords, grade or lexile levels, or by the specific skill or strategy that a teacher would like her students to address (e.g. “cause and effect,” “plot,” “theme” etc.) All passages are accompanied by related question sets.

ReadWorks also offers lesson plans aligned to Common Core standards. Each lesson is accompanied by worksheets, graphic organizers and other materials to facilitate student learning. ReadWorks organizes its lessons into groups that can be taught sequentially over a series of grade levels (e.g. a “skill & strategy unit” focusing on point of view) or on a single novel (e.g. The Westing Game).

Teachers can keep an online “binder” full of the materials they have used, and also provide comments on individual materials. All materials are printable.

IMPLEMENTATION

ReadWorks is a browser-based tool available on any modern browser.

PRICING

ReadWorks is available for free.

WHO IS USING IT

As of August 2014 ReadWorks was being used by over 50,000 teachers in more than 1,000 students.

My district doesn't use lexiles so to have some way to convert lexiles into grade level equivalences would be nice. Not sur what the "grade level" function is when it might have a lexile of 900? I'd like to be able to make a folder for pieces I've used or plan...
