When it comes to literature, teaching the classics is important. But it's a good idea to add contemporary titles to your curriculum, too, especially if your students sometimes have trouble connecting with older texts.

That’s why we created the Discovering Literature collection, a curated selection of noteworthy books that are capturing the attention of teachers and students across the country.

In the United States, November is National Native American Heritage Month, a celebration of the contributions and cultures of America’s Indigenous peoples. In honor of this occasion, this month’s Discovering Literature Digest showcases four fantastic books featuring Indigenous characters and history. Ranging in subject matter, both fiction and nonfiction, these books are sure to capture students’ attention.
