With NoveList you can use your students' favorite books (or the books you use in your classes) to find more books to read and use. The powerful search engine uses detailed and rich subject headings to search by instructional unit, theme or topic. You can find stories that are set in a particular country for use with geography units, books about different cultures and relationships, as well as titles to help students develop their appreciation of literature. NoveList's full-text book reviews from trusted sources such as Booklist and School Library Journal let you determine whether or not a particular title is right for your school. Reviews often identify the instructional uses of titles, as well - whether a book is suitable for reading aloud, for example. username: fams password: fams
