It was so nice to get together for the CMCIG Roundtable at the annual conference last week. At our Common Core discussion I mentioned some links that were helpful to me and I thought I would share them here.
The Chicago Public Schools 2012 Purchasing List has a nice explanation of how they selected the books while keeping the CCSS in mind. You can find that here: http://cpslibraries.wikispaces.com/purchasinglistscurrent
Another CCSS link at the top of my list right now is three part webinar series from School Library Journal. The first one is available as a recording and the next two have yet to be presented. They are free and well worth your time since they are aimed at librarians. http://www.slj.com/webcasts/commoncore/#_
My own Libguide on the Common Core is still a work in progress, and that can be checked out here: http://libguides.bgsu.edu/commoncore
