Comics and the Common Core

It’s that time of year again – back to school. With the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year, there is an increased emphasis on being aligned to the Common Core Curriculum. As an educator who enjoys using comics in the classroom, I’m pleased to share a resource that has been produced by Diamond Comics.

From Diamond’s press release:

“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 97 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 and related resources can be found HERE (
