Reading with Relevance book selections are designed to provide students with characters and content that reflect their own experiences. This means that some reading selections may include controversial themes, mature content, and/or profanity, particularly in our selections for high school readers. Many educators specifically seek these titles because they know their students are wrestling with these topics, and teachers value the intentional framing and instructional supports offered by our curriculum. We advise that you review selections carefully and consider your student population as part of your adoption process, and reach out to us for more information if you have questions about the content. Once you’ve made your selections, we urge you to stand behind your book selections, and engage in thoughtful dialogue with concerned parents and community members about the important social and emotional themes in these valuable books.
