      In my district, we use Journeys Common Core which is already aligned to the Core, so the lessons provided in that text have been vetted. As for additional resources, UDL Exchange is a great tool to build universally designed Common Core lessons. You can check out that tool here:

      Also, there are a number of sites where teachers post their Common Core lessons, so you may be able to find a great tool there.

      Lastly, the International Reading Association has some awesome books about Common Core ELA. I read all of them and it really helped me to understand the shifts.

      Hope this helps,
