The Diamond Graphic Novel Common Core List
To help educators and librarians select materials to fit into their Common Core Standards curricula, Diamond Book Distributors have created the Diamond Graphic Novel Common Core List.
Arranged by grade level, the Diamond Graphic Novel Common Core List offers over 100 graphic novels from our publishers that will fit into a Common Core curriculum, along with resources including Library Classifications, Subject Headings, and Core Standards which apply to each book. The list was created by Diamond Book Distributors and library/education consultant Ellen Myrick, President of Myrick Marketing & Media.
Developed by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of Chief State School Officers-in collaboration with educators and experts- the Common Core Standards are designed to provide a clear, universal framework so that children across the country can compete at the same level. The Common Core English Language Standards - which include the use of graphic novels - are available on the Common Core State Standards Initiative web site.
"As an advocate of comic books and graphic novels in K - 12 educational classroom settings, the Common Core Standards are the best news like-minded educators have ever received." – Dr. Katie Monnin, University of North Florida assistant professor of literacy and author of Teaching Graphic Novels.
