Newsela now allows you to import your classes from Google Classroom. This allows you to get started using Newsela quickly with your students.

To get started, go to: https://newsela.com/

Login or Sign-Up with your Google Account

Click on your name in the top right corner of the page and click on the "Classes" tab:

Click on the "Import Google Classroom" button.

You will need to authorize Newsela to have access to your Google Classroom account. I had to close and refresh the page to see my classes.

Check the box(es) next to the class(es) you wish to import:

Your students will now have their own accounts created and added to your classes. You can immediately assign them articles and text sets!

I hope this new feature saves you time and helps you use Newsela more effectively with your students!
