Teachers across Illinois love using Newsela for nonfiction content. Come learn about our three new products that were released in 2020! We’ll be diving into social studies and participating in specific classroom activities you can share with teachers or use with your own students. The classroom strategies will demonstrate that history can be interactive, differentiated, and engaging, all while supporting Illinois State Standards.

He believes that all students have the right to access and engage in history!
