12 Common Core Essentials: Literature
Selections from New and Classic Books for the English Language Arts Standards for Middle and High School


Although it’s likely that you’ll continue to assign many of the classics that have enriched your students’ lives—we know the Common Core standards are encouraging you to reevaluate the books that you use in your classroom.

We hope this free collection—filled with selections from classics such as Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God, contemporary novels like The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, and the AP English favorite How to Read Literature Like a Professor by Thomas C. Foster—will help you decide which books are right for you and your students.

10 Common Core Essentials: Nonfiction
Selections from New and Classic Books for the English Language Arts Standards for Middle and High School

The new Common Core standards encourage you to add more nonfiction works to your curriculum to give your students the opportunity to read and learn from a variety of texts of historical and literary merit. Now, it’s up to you to decide which books to bring into your classroom.

The books featured in this collection—from the primary documents of The American Reader: Words That Moved a Nation to The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, the inspiring story of young man from an impoverished African village who built a windmill from scavenged parts to bring life-changing electricity to his community—will take students across time periods and around the world. They’ll grapple with complex ideas and meet people from the past and present who will inspire them.  Along the way, your students will come to understand the components of good writing and why they matter.
