Modules and Text Lists - focus on ELA

We love Engage NY!  We really do.  Most recently, we love that they have created text lists for the P-12 ELA Curriculum modules.  For access to the modules as well as the text lists, please visit the engage website at  http://engageny.org/english-language-arts.

Keep in mind that the texts in Appendix B are examplar texts - which means that they are examples for the types of texts we may choose in order to teach the standards.  Many of the texts in Appendix B are outdated. More current, applicable texts can be found associated with the modules themselves.

In addition to the materials available through engage, please note that TeachingBooks (available through our school databases links) provides materials to enhance instruction of these texts.  These materials include multimedia, lesson plans, website links, book guides, author interviews and much more.  Please see library staff for the password to TeachingBooks.net.

And, as always, do not forget to check our library catalog for books and ebooks which we may already own that are on the lists.  If you do not find what you are looking for, be sure to recommend a title for purchase!
