XBOOKS Supports the Common Core State Standards

In alignment with the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts, XBOOKS promotes readiness for college, career, and life by developing a broad range of reading, thinking and research skills, including:

  • Independence in reading and writing, from the scaffolded support of Lead Books to the independent reading of Reader's Choice titles and complex Stretch Texts.
  • Responding to varying demands of audience, task, purpose and discipline through text-dependent questions, tasks and research projects.
  • Valuing evidence by citing specific references to XBOOKS texts and other sources.
