Publisher's Description
Looking for a way to increase engagement, differentiate instruction, and incorporate more informational text and student writing into your curriculum? Teaching with Text Sets is your answer! This must-have resource walks you through the steps to create and use multi-genre, multimodal text sets for content area and language arts study. It provides detailed information support you as you choose topics, locate and evaluate texts, organize texts for instruction, and assess student learning. The guide is an excellent resource to help you meet the Common Core and other state Standards.

What is a Text Set? Can I See an Example?
Ms. Cappiello, one of the book's authors, defines a text set and offers two models in a posting<http://classroombookshelf.blogspot.com/2012/10/teaching-with-text-sets.html> on the blog called The Classroom Bookshelf.

Jen's Notes
While the focus of this book is text sets for elementary and middle school, the concept can be applied to high school as well. I was impressed with the thought that went into this book. For example,
the authors mention libraries and subscription databases. The ideas are something you can share with teachers if/as you help them find resources to support the Common Core State Standards.
