New Resources

If you have not already seen it, last week the International Reading Association (IRA) published a white paper, "Literacy Implementation Guidelines for the ELA Common Core State Standards." The IRA webpage has a Common Core Resources section, as does the National Council of Teachers of English.

Back in September, Julie Corsaro, Past President of the Association for Library Service to Children and former member of Newbery and Caldecott Committees, published interviews with Marc and Mary Ann for her NoveList column.  Reading both interviews, Marc's "Common Core: It's Not Happening Without the Librarian" and Mary Ann's "Common Core: Authentic Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking, gives you a chance to explore how teachers and librarians can work together. Thanks to Julie for helping us spread the word about the exciting ways that nonfiction can transform curriculum.
