Newsela Learning Domain

Supercharge reading engagement across content areas using Newsela tools

About Newsela Learning Domain

The Newsela Learning Domain includes 100 cross-curricular teaching strategies that focus on literacy skill development for grades 2-12. These strategies contain vibrant digital reading experiences using Newsela.com texts and text sets that serve to supercharge student reading engagement and infuse literacy skills into every content area.

The strategies in the Newsela Learning Domain were developed as part of the Newsela Master Teacher project. For the Newsela Master Teacher Project, several highly-qualified Master Teachers with considerable wisdom about best teaching methods across grade bands and subject areas, and knowledge about the most powerful use of the Newsela tools, captured and shared their highest-leverage cross-disciplinary literacy practices.
