Summary
With this book, Janice Kristo and Rosemary Bamford show you not only how to choose nonfiction wisely, but how to teach it wisely. They provide a theoretically solid framework for weaving nonfiction across a comprehensive literacy program, beginning with approaches that require heavy student support -- such as instructional read aloud and modeled writing -- and moving toward approaches that don't -- such as discovery circles and readers' and writers' workshops. The result? Students become confident, capable readers and writers of nonfiction. Brimming with the words, work, and wisdom of real classroom teachers, this is a timely and practical resource
