Article-A-Day from ReadWorks

Article-A-Day is a classroom routine that dramatically builds student background knowledge, academic vocabulary, and reading stamina. The four step routine requires little prep time, takes ten minutes of class time each day, and is based on the highest-quality cognitive science research of how students learn to read.

Article-A-Day was first launched at the start of the the 2015-2016 school year in three pilot schools with 93 teachers and 1,318 students. But the news quickly spread.

  • In the 2016-2017 school year, 6,210 teachers and 93,150 students did Article-A-Day.
  • In the 2017-2018 school year, 48,596 teachers and 738,659 students did Article-A-Day.

In the past 6 months alone, 11,623 teachers attended an Article-A-Day training webinar, and 99,206 teachers viewed the Article-A-Day training page.

Here’s what some teachers are saying about it:

  • “My students love doing Article-A-Day! Week 2 and they will NOT let me skip it! Teacher WIN!! I am your newest ambassador.” -4th Grade Teacher, AL
  • “My students LOVED Article-A-Day last school year! Great differentiation capabilities! And I have over 60% ELLS in my class! Can’t wait to use it again! – 3rd Grade Teacher, NY
  • “I just wanted to let you know how valuable Article-A-Day has been in my classroom. My students LOVE the articles—sharing is their favorite part of the day! I have seen an improvement in their vocabulary and fluency since we first began. Again, Thank you!” – 2nd Grade Teacher, NC
