Informational Texts and Where to Find them: Online Resources for Nonfiction and the Common Core State Standards

With the implementation of the CCSS, educators will be faced with an increasing need for nonfiction and other informational texts. By grade 4, 50% of what students read should be informational. By grade 8, the rate goes up to 55%. At grade 12, the rate is 70%. These standards are not just for English Language Arts classrooms, so what’s an educator to do? Where can you find the informational texts that are being required with increased rigor?”

Presented by: Deborah B.
