#cotlf #edtech #edchat If you ‘d like to have your students research a topic online but know that some will struggle with reading the information they find, teach your students to search by reading level. Google will actually let you filter your results by reading level if you use their “Advanced” search function. To do so, look on the left side of your page of search results and click on “More search tools” (you may need to scroll to see it). Then click on “Reading Level” and you will be able to see your search results broken down by level.

You can also search through a search engine called Twurdy, which is powered by Bing and also allows you to search by reading level. It takes a little longer to get back the search results, but they are then color coded by level of difficulty.
