Teacher's College and Lucy Calkins Classroom Libraries
Titles were chosen for their high-interest topics, rich literary qualities, and strong potential to develop critical thinking. Because the upper grades libraries include titles with content appropriate for maturing students, some of the books contain strong language, themes involving death, coming of age, peer pressure, and similar mature content. To ensure your students are exploring content that matches what you understand to be their social and emotional development, you may wish to review titles before introducing them to students.
