Webpage Readability in Google

Finding online resources that are written at a reading level that works for students is difficult at times. With Destiny Quest, we can search for books by readabiity. Some student search engines will filter their results
     There are several sites designed for younger students, including
Quinturakids. oom
     These are great with younger students, but for older students, Google now offers a readability option. There are only three settings: basic, intermediate, and advanced,  and the basic is not terribly low. But the basic results are usually clearly written or in a video or image format. T access the readability feature choose advanced search. Click on reading level under Need more tools?
