Every news article is written by professional journalists and reviewed by a child psychologist to ensure they are age-appropriate for K-8 students. Articles are available in English, Spanish and French, with recorded audio, and presented at three Lexile(R) levels.
Coverage includes high-interest US and world news as well as arts and entertainment, sports, science and technology, animals, wacky news and kids in the news. Each article incorporates engaging multimedia -- videos, slideshows and photo galleries -- to help students better understand the news. Accompanying maps show where news is occurring relative to the location of the reader.
If student accounts also grant them access to the myON digital book library, their subscriptions to myON News, powered by News-O-Matic, will include book recommendations for each article to encourage further reading on topics of interest.
