We have compiled a list of children's literature that can be used to help students understand concepts in Ohio's New Learning Standards for Social Studies and master the skills in the Common Core State Standards in Reading.  Use the GoodReads feeds below to access the list.
"Literature and literary materials should play an important part in social studies instruction because they convey so well the affective dimension of human experience. The realism achieved through vivid portrayals in works of literature stirs the imagination of the young reader and helps develop a feeling for and an identification with the topic being studied." - John Jarolimek, Social Studies in Elementary Education
