Prescott, Stephanie, Ed.
This list of over 1,250 readings was compiled by teachers, administrators, curriculum planners, and librarians throughout California to encourage students to read, to help local curriculum planners select books, and to stimulate educators to evaluate their literature programs. The list contains three types of literature: core, including what is taught in classrooms; extended, including readings assigned to groups or as homework; and recreational-motivational literature, including individual leisure-time materials. The first section (Core and Extended Materials) includes such categories as: Picture Books, Folklore, Plays (Kindergarten through Grade Six), and Books in Languages Other Than English. The second section (Recreational and Motivational Materials) includes similar categories including: Modern Fantasy and Science Fiction, Poetry, Contemporary Realistic Fiction, and Historical Fiction. The third section (Materials for Students in Grades Seven and Eight) includes the categories: Adventure, Biography and Autobiography, Personal Experience, Classics, Mythology, and Short Stories. (EF)
