Shakespeare vs. menus: The battle over public school reading lists.

 

"In my experience, students need more exposure to nonfiction, less to help with reading skills, but as a model for their own essays and expository writing."

 

"What schools really need isn’t more nonfiction but better nonfiction, especially that which provides good models for student writing."


Models of narrative nonfiction are everywhere...

Teaching standards doesn't necessitate a standardized approach to teaching. Teachers share ideas for providing a standards-based, but authentic learning experience for all students.
