From 6 Ed Tech Tools to Try in 2023

THE JUICE

thejuicelearning.com

This current events platform delivers five articles to students every day. Designed for grades 5-12 at four different reading levels, the standards-aligned articles are written by the Juice staff and sourced from a variety of news outlets. Each article has vocabulary, a comprehension quick check, and the option to read or listen to the articles. Included in every issue are infographics, articles on SEL and STEAM topics, and “extra Juice” links, which send readers to previous Juice articles that relate to the daily topic.

“So you enroll your class, and you assign a reading level to each individual student,” Kim Darche explains. “And then automatically, the students are given their ‘Daily Juice’ in the level that you have assigned them. Then on the teacher’s end there’s this insane dashboard that talks about which articles the students have read, what questions they got correct, how long they spent reading.”

What impresses Darche the most is the quality of the articles and how closely aligned they are with the current events covered by major news outlets. “The articles range; they go from global, cultural affairs to sports. It feels like a newspaper that’s getting delivered.” she says. And even more impressive, she says, are the comprehension questions that supplement the articles. “The questions blew me away as much as the articles did.”
