Providing access to youth-friendly news content, building critical thinking skills, and offering young minds authentic reasons to write are three things that we obsess about here at Xyza. That’s why we offer relatable news stories focused on a variety of topics, ask open-ended questions, and offer news engagement opportunities such as our Junior Reporter program, news workshops, poll questions, trivia, and more. Xyza’s online and in print, making it a natural addition to any classroom or library. Learn more about what makes Xyza: News for Kids unique by scrolling down.

Testimonials

  • The kids in my library classes love the Xyza print newspaper. They are reading it together during library time and say that they love how much easier it is to read than “the normal newspaper.” They are especially happy that the February issue contains news about Trump because most of them have been getting news second-hand from parents and siblings, so it feels good to read for themselves about what is going on. Thanks!

  • The kids are really motivated to read it based on the format and content so it’s a good way to check for comprehension and these skills. I will be using it as a model as we work on a class project of putting out a newspaper about things going on in our community and our school.

    — Chicago School Educator

  • I love the layout of your January preview issue, the news you are covering, and the way you cover it. It is perfect for students in my school.
