Appendix B Diversity Supplement

The authors of the Common Core State Standards created a list of text exemplars (called Appendix B) intended as a comparative tool for educators to measure their current libraries against countrywide expectations for rigorous literature and informational text. Our Appendix B Diversity Supplement offers the rigor necessary for academic success and meets the need for texts that all children can identify with and enjoy. This diversity-themed list to Appendix B provides an extensive collection of contemporary authors and characters of color, while meeting the Common Core criteria (complexity, quality, range) at each grade level.
