Appendix B Diverse Collection High School - APPENDIX-B-HS

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 Diverse Collection for grades 9-12 offers the rigor necessary for academic success and meets the need for stories that all children can identify with and enjoy.

This culturally responsive 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 9-12. Texts included here represent the demand of text that primary grade students should be reading to be college and career ready by the end of Grade 12. Learn more about text complexity at the Common Core State Standards Initiative and how to build a more diverse reading list from our literacy partners
