Teachers may search the Common Core State Standards-aligned resources by content area or standard. This is a great way to create text sets or paired selections for students. It affords teachers a quick way to access texts to provide extended learning opportunities. These texts could easily be used as part of a center or learning station, for independent or guided instruction, for appropriate background knowledge, or as an extension of learning.
