Curriculum-related booklists for independent reading

Use CurriConnects to find books related to curriculum topics or subject areas. Build student literacy skills, reinforce the place of curriculum concepts in other contexts, and help students build the important reading strategy of connecting what they read to prior knowledge. Share CurriConnects as links on your class web page or wiki or share them with school and local libraries where students can select books to accompany what they are studying.

CurriConnects lists include ISBN numbers for ordering or searching, interest grade levels, ESL levels and Lexiles® to match with student independent reading levels to challenge, not frustrate. Learn more about Lexiles® and how they pinpoint student reading levels here. See ideas for using the Curriconnects lists here.

TeachersFirst will continue to add more lists, so check back. If you have a specific topic suggestion, feel free to contact us via our webmaster account, subject line: “CurriConnects suggestion.”
