The Other Side: Common Core Lesson Ideas

Picture books create excitement about reading and also fit perfectly into the English Language Arts requirements of the Common Core State Standards. The K–3 standards call for students to pay close attention to words and illustrations and to learn to identify characters, setting, and plot. The books in this brochure offer the sort of multilayered language that the standards emphasize. This guide was prepared by Kathleen Odean.
