Tackling nearly every aspect of the English Language Arts Standards and the measures they employ, this book offers a thorough plan for engaging elementary school students with literature. It explores the benefits and teaching principles behind Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and explains how to apply them to literature. Along with the strengths it has in connection to CCSS, you will learn about the history of children's literature and what both fiction and nonfiction bring to the classroom.
