The October 2013 edition of the ABC Group Common Core Resource is now available to all ABA member booksellers with a BookWeb user name and password. The Excel file, developed with the input of ABA’s Publisher Partners and synthesized by ABC Group Manager Shannon O’Connor, features 900 Common Core-compatible backlist titles sortable by:
- Grade Level
- School Subject
- Measures of Text Complexity (Accelerated Reader, Lexile Level, and Fountas & Pinnell)
- Core Narrative and Plot Elements
The resource, which is located under “Children’s Bookselling” in the Education section of BookWeb’s Designs & Downloads, was developed to help booksellers both build their inventory of Common Core title selections and fill requests from teachers and librarians for lists of Common Core-appropriate titles.
The ABC Group Common Core Resource will be updated with recent publications twice per year. Booksellers can expect to see the next edition in spring 2014.
Questions about this resource or anything else relating to the ABC Group at ABA can be addressed to O’Connor via e-mail or at (800) 637-0037, ext. 7551.
