Overview

The Common Core in Grades 4–6 is the first in a series of comprehensive tools to recommend exemplary titles for use in the classroom. Currency meets authority in this guide, brought to you by the editors of the highly regarded review sources School Library Journal and The Horn Book Magazine. An introduction by Common Core experts Mary Ann Cappiello and Myra Zarnowski offers perspectives on the key changes brought by the new standards, including suggestions on designing lessons and sample plans. Following the introduction is an authoritative guide to approximately 200 selections published since 2007 for grades 4–6 recommended by The Horn Book Magazine. These are grouped by subject and complemented by School Library Journal’s “Focus On” columns, which spotlight specific topics across the curriculum. Each section contains a list of the top titles with annotations and bibliographic data. “Focus On” articles are appended to appropriate categories to support in-depth curricular development and include a topic overview and list of current and retrospective resources and multimedia—including some fiction—that will enable educators to respond to Common Core state standard’s call to work across formats.

Editorial Reviews

Marc Aronson
The Common Core in Grades 4-6 provides two invaluable gifts to teachers, parents, and public librarians. Its pages are filled with informative reviews of a wide range of recent, well-written, well-researched, and engaging nonfiction titles. A tour through these reviews is the perfect guide to either enhance or explore a nonfiction collection. But the grace note is the wise and informed introductory essay by two experts, Drs. Myra Zarnowski and Mary Ann Cappiello. Here you have the right books, with the right framing notes, and the right road map for using them in a classroom. What more could you want in a Common Core guide?
