Reading Lists: Educators

Books to support the Common Core Standard ELA-Literacy.RH.6-8. 4-9. For example: "Identify aspects of a text that reveal an author’s point of view or purpose (e.g., loaded language, inclusion or avoidance of particular facts)," and "distinguish among fact, opinion, and reasoned judgment in a text." And ELA-Literacy.RH.9-10. 4-6. "Compare the point of view of two or more authors for how they treat the same or similar topics, including which details they include and emphasize in their respective accounts."

Materials about communities and neighborhoods (in English and Spanish) for grades K-2. The library has already-prepared Buckets of Books on this topic that you can check out. The Buckets contain books similar to those on the list (though not every title is exactly the same) plus a teacher's guide.
