Common Core State Standards: Printable Resources from Booklist Publications

Welcome to Booklist Publications’ home for Common Core State Standards resources. Below you’ll find links to Common Core–related material from Booklist and Book Links magazines, Quick Tips e-newsletter, and Booklist Online, including our Bookends blog. A new educational initiative brings enormous challenges for everyone, especially the teachers and librarians charged with summoning the energy and creativity required to implement the changes. We hope our coverage, including suggestions for linking individual titles with specific standards, will help educators address these new directives while extending our mission: to get the best books for children into the classroom and into the hands of students. As always, your feedback is essential. How can we better support you? Let us know.
