COMMON CORE ELA Grades 8-12- For your consideration: LIE

LIE is a novel for the today’s student reader – bringing with it a complex world view, of teenagers – and adults—making key, life-changing decisions to tell the truth or lie about a hate crime. As the author and as a someone with experience teaching English composition and literature at The City University of New York in Harlem, while completing my MFA in Fiction, I have attempted to outline key questions, which are culled from the Common Core standards for English language instruction in New York for grades 8-12. This Common Core guide for LIE, including summary of major themes, characters, and points of view, can be found at my website.

In some cases, I have added author's notes, which are hopefully insightful and directional, but certainly not the final word on the text  I am sure that there are close readers out there who will interpret the text in a more rigorous way than even the author.

I welcome hearing from you about your classroom experience with LIE.Find out more about LIE for the Common Core grades 8-12 at www.carolinebock.com. I'm eager to hear about your experiences with LIE in the classroom.
