Newsela Teacher Trainer 

Newsela Teacher Trainer is a certification program for educators, administrators, and coaches to qualify as an official trainer and presenter for schools, conferences, and events. The online lessons will review a framework for understanding effective professional learning, mindsets for coaching, and applications of essential training resources. 

“Becoming a Newsela Teacher Trainer inspired me to begin teaching professional development classes.  It was definitely outside my comfort zone at first, but now I love teaching my colleagues about Newsela!  Teachers are always so excited when they see how Newsela can support their instruction. Newsela has inspired teachers across our district to create amazing differentiated units to meet the needs of all learners. It is a joy to see!” - Christine Scoppa, Middle school Reading Specialist, NY

Newsela Fellowship 

At Newsela, our mission is "to unlock the written word for everyone”. We strive to transform the way students access the world through relevant and interesting nonfiction content. The Newsela Fellowship is an elite professional learning community that offers our most innovative Newsela educators a year-long opportunity to be part of this mission by learning as a cohort, designing and implementing a passion project, and coming together to speak at a Fellow Summit. 

A Newsela Fellow is an exemplary Newsela educator and/or school leader who has been selected to spend one year completing a passion project in which Newsela is used to transform learning either in the classroom, the school community, or the education world at-large. A Newsela Fellow will always be a Fellow even after the year-long project has been completed. 

Current NCEs and NTT are invited to apply by July 30th. Learn more and apply here. 

*Note: Completing the NCE course is a prerequisite for these programs.
