After the break, the students will be starting a Nonfiction reading unit.

The big idea is:

Using a variety of skills and strategies, readers read nonfiction to learn about the real world. 

We will be focusing on the following:

  • What is nonfiction?
  • Why do we read nonfiction?
  • How and why do readers use nonfiction to investigate/research?
  • Why do readers read more than one piece about the same topic?
  • What reading strategies are used to understand nonfiction?

Students will also be introduced to the Nonfiction Signposts, which help them establish a deeper understanding of a text. Below are the signposts that we will look at in the first few weeks.
