Write in NewsELA

I've written about my affinity for NewsELA in the past because it gives current events which teachers and students can change to their reading level.  It's great for addressing non-fiction and current events in the classroom.  Today they've released a new feature called Write that allows students to respond to a prompt from NewsELA or from one that's teacher created.  Here's a bit from their description:

Thanks for taking a moment to explore the Write feature. For each article, Newsela has created a prompt, which is a question designed to elicit feedback from students that demonstrates their reading comprehension. You can use the Newsela-created prompt or you can create your own prompt.
Follow these steps to get started:
  1. Assign an article.
  2. Choose a prompt.
  3. Show students how to respond to the prompt.
  4. Review your students' responses.
