Fall Literature Lesson Planning Favorites

Fall Literature Lesson Planning Favorites

New and Notable from and Patria Press

Rita, from, recently had the following to share with the AMC readers:  “In response to that need, we organized our Core Collection of 150 titles into five major categories."

Genre Collections  

Theme Collections  
Level Collections
Top Ten Collections
Special Collections 

"Each of the five categories is presented online in an easy-to-use Planning Guide which includes the curriculum collections for that category.  Visitors at have full access to the guides to view the information provided for each title in a collection--information about genre, author, story summary, activities list, and much more.  The online guides make it more convenient for you to both select titles to meet your plan as well as purchase resources from our three product series:   Bookfolio Student Activity Guides, Chapter Reading Guides, and BookfolioPLUS titles.  All our instructional resources are available online in two versions:  you-download-for-instant-access and we-print-and-mail-to-you-access.  We invite you to visit and to take advantage of our online resources."
