Thursday is Technology Day

Over the weekend, one of my daughters explained the bottom left corner of a google search to me. This google feature is a great tool for helping children access appropriate reading level documents and articles.

 At the very bottom of this clipped image from my google search page is the choice for showing search tools.

If you click on that, you have the choice of several options, but one of the options is reading level.

If you click on the reading level, then you can sort your search results by basic, intermediate and advanced reading levels. When students are doing research and trying to find accessible information, this is a potentially useful tool for them to know about and use, as well as a great resource for classroom differentiation. Happy searching!
