The purpose of the USOE Digital Books is to ensure that teachers and students have access to a wide range of texts. For the 2012-2013 academic year, this edition is focusing on INFORMATIONAL and LITERARY NON-FICTION. USOE Digital Books for secondary English Language Arts are a supplemental DIGITAL resource that will be developed and expanded each year. These texts have been assessed by teacher teams for text complexity by using both quantitative lexile level and qualitative criteria.
