Texts for Students
The Teachers College Reading and Writing Project has developed state-of-the-art classroom libraries for each grade level, K–8. Curated by Lucy Calkins and TCRWP colleagues along with a team of literacy leaders and children’s literature experts, these libraries contain 400–700 leveled books at each grade level—all organized into collections, shelves, and bins based on level, genre, topic, and available in versions for students reading both at and below benchmark.
We also have additional resources for supporting students’ reading. For example, here you will find some courses of study for teen readers.
We have also gathered digital resources to support students’ reading and research in informational texts. We have aimed to gather texts on a range of topics and across levels. As always, we suggest previewing these texts before using them in your classroom in order to ensure that you find materials that are best suited for your particular students.
