Data Base: Children’s Books with Diverse Representation Aligned with Social Studies Standards, Grades 2-5
Grade Levels: 2nd-5th
In 2017, the CEC partnered with SPPS teachers, and members of the Social Studies and Elementary Literacy Departments to develop this data base of high quality children's literature with diverse representation. All books align with social studies standards in grades 2-5, and can be checked out from the CEC by filling out resource request form. The books have been vetted by SPPS teachers, but there are always multiple perspectives that may not have been considered. There are always new books being published as well! If you have any comments, questions, ideas or suggestions for new books, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
