Twurdy

Every days students head off to a search engine and are at the mercy of their search results.  Most times they find themselves on a page but don't know how they got there or how to comprehend the words they are reading.  Twurdy is a Google powered search engine that breaks pages down by their readability level.  Simple Twurdy will be the quickest search, while Twurdy with pop is the most complex algorithm.

Now What?

Twurdy is a great resource to show to your students so that they can begin searching the web based on content readability.  This is also a great tool for a teacher who is looking for content on different reading levels.
