  • 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.
