The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is asking for our help in creating reading lists for elementary, middle and high schools students. The Summertime Nonfiction reading list will reflect Common Core standards while encouraging students to read science, history and biographies for their own enjoyment. The public is asked to suggest books and a final selection will be made by a panel of experts.
Don’t complain about what isn’t on the list if you don’t take the opportunity to suggest titles now! Be prepared to state what lasting value you believe the book has and provide a brief summary.
I don’t see a closing date on the announcement, so please submit your titles sooner rather than later.
