Common Core Text Exemplars: Summer Reading for Teachers | EDSITEment

This list of EDSITEment resources includes lessons, websites, interactives, and featured articles aligned to the ELA, Common Core State Standards text exemplars.
EDSITEment's insight:

This summer, as educators select teaching texts in preparation for the college and career-ready standards implementation, EDSITEment offers the following list of aligned resources for the college and career-ready standards text exemplars itemized in Appendix B. These text exemplars epitomize the level of complexity and quality and range that the Standards require of all students in a given grade level. They are meant to serve as guideposts.

EDSITEment follows each author and exemplary text on this list with related lesson plans, reviewed websites, NEH features, as well as entries from our Closer Readings blog.
