"The Com­mon Core State Stan­dards are shift­ing the focus of teach­ing to the use of com­plex non­fic­tion in the the class­room.  There is no bet­ter way to imple­ment the CCSS in your class­room than by study­ing non­fic­tion lit­er­a­ture from iNK’s team of award-winning authors.  Our books are also aligned to the National Cur­ricu­lum Stan­dards so you can eas­ily find ter­rific grade-appropriate read­ing on the sub­jects you have to teach."

Stealthy Readers’ Advisory: Getting Boys to Read | NoveList | EBSCOhost | Collection Development | Scoop.it
We've all heard this, haven't we? Boys and books don’t go together. We heard it in library school, we might see it among our patrons, and maybe even experience it at home with the boys in our lives

Marita Thomson's curator insight, August 21, 2013 5:44 PM

Some outside the square ideas for what works with boys, but none of these ideas need be exclusive to them. I like the emphasis on relationship building for long term success. Settng up activities which don't start with books but can easily include them is an excellent soft sell option. Recognising that many kids want to do things rather than talk about them opens up interesting options.

Common Core State Standards - Resources | Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC)

Common Core State Standards (CCSS) have been adopted in a majority of states. The question for many public youth librarians is how best to support their school colleagues and families in this new educational adventure. One of the most important changes that has occurred is an increasing emphasis on using non-fiction, specifically narrative non-fiction, to address the standards in teaching critical thinking skills. Libraries with strong non-fiction collections and open communication with their school colleagues will find they are ready to provide the needed support in their collections and services. The following resources can serve as a starting point to become more familiar with CCSS and gain confidence in serving your community.
