Write a Book Rationale
Book rationales are some of the strongest tools for educators to show why This Story Matters in their schools and classrooms. Rationales are created by educators who use their expertise in literacy and teaching, grounded in the standards students need to meet to achieve their educational goals. Each rationale includes summaries, grade-level suggestions, teaching tools, alternative book titles, and more. NCTE has created and collected peer-reviewed book rationales for decades, and a database of hundreds of titles can now be accessed online. View the full list of available titles here.
If you would like to be part of our rationale writing team, please click ‘ENGAGE HERE‘. We are looking for writers to be involved in multiple ways, as your schedule allows. Please fill out this form to join the team, and we will follow up with additional information. You can submit a rationale of your choice for review and potential addition to the rationale database, indicate if you would like to be assigned a title, or learn more about the process.
