Throughout the U.S., schools are implementing the Common Core State Standards. Two key shifts are particularly important for our teaching and learning; the call for balancing informational and literary texts, and the focus on helping students read increasingly complex texts. Librarians can play a vital role supporting the professional development of teachers as they implement the Common Core. This panel discussion will show how we can support elementary students as they read gradually more difficult text around a subject, with a special focus on informational books. We will show how school and public libraries can provide both stimulating read-alouds and just-right books of increasing complexity.
