Differentiation & Accessibility
Support All Learners

Provide access for every reader

Doesn’t everyone deserve access to the events that shape their worlds? We think so, which is why each feature story in News2you is differentiated to four reading levels—with universal symbol support from the popular SymbolStix PRIME database—plus a text‑only version for proficient readers and students using screen readers or CCTV. And News2you meets the increased focus on accessibility driven by ESSA with even more customization options.

Advanced edition

Students read expanded text and additional details in the same periodical format they’ll see outside of school, with large, colorful, digital photos and descriptive captions.

Higher edition

Students get the majority of their in-depth understanding from the text, which is presented in paragraph form and supported by minimal symbols.

Regular edition

Students arrive at an in-depth understanding of the topic by reading multiple symbol-supported sentences on each page. The option to show or hide the symbols provides an interactive way to check comprehension and understanding.

Simplified edition

Students get a solid overview by reading through sentences containing a limited amount of symbol-supported text.

Text-only edition

Proficient students read the same text as the regular/higher edition in a text-only format. The text-only edition is also perfect for use with screen readers or for students in need of Braille conversion.

Accessibility addresses INDIVIDUAL STUDENT NEEDS

For ensuring all unique learners, ELLs, and struggling readers get the support they need, there’s accessibility options like text-to-speech, the ability to adjust reading speed, the option to hide and show symbols, and much more.
