Smart Pop + Common Core

Our Smart Pop essay anthologies are designed to model the reading and writing skills that students need to excel in the classroom, college, and beyond. Our YA titles not only demonstrate Common Core Anchor Standards using popular Young Adult book series your students already love to talk about, but also serve as engaging informational texts to help you meet the Common Core’s nonfiction requirements.

Whether exploring District geography in the Hunger Games’ Panem, or analyzing Ancient Greece through the myths discussed in Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Smart Pop’s YA books also help students build broad interdisciplinary knowledge.
