The NoveList team creates documents especially targeted at teachers and school media specialists, called Common Core Connections. These documents identify books that relate directly to specific sections of the Common Core standards, and then suggest discussion questions based on those books. The Common Core Connections are an invaluable, time-saving resource. Download a sample packet of Common Core Connections.
In NoveList Plus, you can search by topic, age range, reading level (Lexile), and more to find just the right books to meet the needs of students.
