Resources for Non-Fiction Articles

By on December 16, 2013

This month, we added a new resource to our Common Core Tools section. Our Non-Fiction Source Reference offers quality websites that teachers of science, history, and English can use to find non-fiction articles. 

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) ask teachers to teach reading in their disciplines. One way to do this is to expose students to articles that are written with your content in mind. With non-fiction articles, you can bring in modern issues, add layers of context to the information students are learning in class, or use articles to help make your content more relevant to your students' lives.

Take a look at our resources and let us know what you think. Remember, you can find an article and quickly build a Common Core aligned lesson with our Lesson Plan Templates, or use our Writing Prompt Builder to develop a text-dependent performance task for an article you find online. 

If you would like to contribute to this list of resources, please join the conversation and share them below. We will look at all suggestions and post the best ideas in our Non-Fiction Source Reference

Literacy Standards In Action

We've mapped our literacy lessons and reading, speaking, and writing skills to state standards, Common Core, and NGSS. The standards are "the what" to teach. Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.
