TODAYS AGENDA: INTRO TO NONFICTION
TODAYS AGENDA: K-W-L CHARTS AND HOW THEY HELP YOU READ NON FICTION
When introducing nonfiction to a class, it is important for students to understand the purpose of these texts. Once they comprehend that purpose of nonfiction books is to provide information about a certain topic, they may take the time to explore and read about a topic they already find interesting.
Reluctant readers may struggle with nonfiction, but using books with pictures helps to engage students. Providing text sets of non fiction picture books related to the unit is a good Segway into more challenging informational texts.
K-W-L charts are only helpful if the students understand why they are using them with their reading. K-W-L charts are there to help retrieve background knowledge and generate questions, however if students are never taught to do those things prior to reading non fiction, the K-W-L chart cannot do its job in facilitating students reading.
