LEE & LOW BOOKS is committed to meeting the needs of educators by providing award-winning, diverse books for today’s classrooms, along with the resources educators need to make meaningful use of each book.

The success and popularity of LEE & LOW titles in classrooms inspired the idea of creating a space for educators to collaborate and share best practices and lesson ideas.

With this in mind, LEE & LOW has developed lesson plans and teacher’s guides that support classroom instruction in reading strategies and complex content and themes. Designed by educators for educators, the Curriculum Corner offers a variety of resources to support small- and whole-group instruction, home-school connections, and national and state standards.
