Strong and Coginchaug teachers are making increasing use of Google Drive and Docs in their classrooms. With a few simple steps, a live, editable Google Doc can be embedded directly into your website. Posting a Google Doc (rather than just the link to one) could be a good way to make a resource like a syllabus or rubric more quickly accessible, or an embedded Google Doc could provide a forum for collaboration. See what it looks like and find the steps to embed a Google Doc here.
NOTE: embedding a live document means that viewers with editing privileges can change the file right on your website (although embedding it doesn't change the permissions. People with no access still won't be able to get to it). Check your sharing settings to make sure you don't see unwanted changes. You can set the file to 'Anyone with the link can view' to allow access without editing. To post a static, unchangeable version, embed a PDF instead.
Newsela collects daily news articles and edits them to meet the needs of readers with different abilities. Teachers and students can click the appropriate Lexile score in the sidebar to change the complexity of the given text. Their frequently-updated library has news articles on many subjects and many of them have quizzes attached (the articles with quizzes are aligned to Common Core standards). Teachers can create classes which students can join to see their assigned reading. Newsela is available now in a no-charge beta version for teachers and students. Create a free account for unlimited access.
