As teachers are tasked with aligning their curriculum to the Common Core State Standards, many teachers have questions about the role of literature and the use of fiction versus non-fiction works. This webinar will review the Common Core method for evaluating books, and will provide some recommended titles as well as methods for staying current on new literature. Join Tamara Cox and Kristen Hearne as they help you understand the emphasis on nonfiction and share strategies for integrating informational text into your classroom and promoting nonfiction to your students.
