PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Common Core State Standards have established the need for college and career ready students to be proficient in reading complex informational text independently in a variety of content areas. Most of the required reading in college and workforce training programs is informational in structure and challenging in content.

How do we prepare our students to meet this challenge?

Require, encourage, and promote the reading of nonfiction texts!

Check It Out! includes numerous resources, handouts, printables, and teaching ideas all designed to encourage students to read more nonfiction books.

This nonfiction book project can be taught in collaboration with your library media specialist or implemented by the classroom teacher alone. The project concludes with a nonfiction book assessment using Blendspace for Educators (formerly EdCanvas).

This free resource includes the following:

Teacher’s Notes and Directions
