Get content-aligned books that motivate kids to read.

Basal readers and content-area textbooks can help teachers meet the standards. Evidence suggests that if students exclusively use textbooks, that can stifle student interest and development of critical-thinking skills. By supplementing textbooks with classroom libraries, teachers give students extra incentive to read, which can boost content-area learning.
