Pages In This Section
The books below are resources that I personally own or have read and believe to be the some of the best literacy books on the market. All of them are well-organized, practical reads that show you how to embed successful strategies into whatever reading curriculum your district uses (rather than espousing a whole new set of demands on top of district requirements). You can click on any book to see sample pages and reviews from other teachers, as well as ordering information from Amazon.
Close Reading Resources
SnapLearning has been a longtime supporter of The Cornerstone, and I believe strongly in the value of their digital resources. They provide hundreds of grade-appropriate eBooks, both fiction and non-fiction, which you can assign to your students and send to their devices! The eBooks come with interactive exercises and assignments which you can later review and assess. Best of all, the content is Common Core-aligned. If you want to check out their close reading portfolio (which is an awesome set of interactive exercises), you can request a free trial demo.
