I use CommonLit all the time when planning my unit and yearly curriculum. Materials are rigorous and relevant in an easy-to-find, teacher-friendly format. I can tell it is a resource written by teachers, which is so important!
CommonLit offers a unique resource in support of literacy and critical thinking. The wonderful collection of free and accessible texts enables students to explore enduring themes.

As an ELA curriculum director for the Match network of charter schools, I have found no resource that is more valuable or immediately impactful in the classroom.
