No Nonsense Non-fiction: Tips for incorporating non-fiction into the ELA curriculum

No Nonsense Non-fiction: Tips for incorporating non-fiction into the ELA curriculum | Common Core State Standards | Scoop.it

Many school districts are going through a painstaking process of writing new curricula to meet the Common Core State Standards. One of the biggest changes for English language arts teachers working to refine and update curricula is the need to incorporate larger amounts of nonfiction texts. As ELA teachers, we are experts in teaching literature — but nonfiction? Having recently gone through the process of writing a new middle-school ELA curriculum, I fully understand this challenge. Below are some of the ways our middle school ELA teachers worked to more organically integrate nonfiction texts into our teaching.

Keep in mind the expectation to increase non-fiction texts (and more complex texts) is not only in the ELA class, but other subjects as well. 

Mary Reilley Clark's curator insight, January 8, 2014 1:21 PM

Great examples of how to painlessly add informational text to your teaching.

It is important that students are provided with many opportunities to speak (and listen). Especially when planning lessons sometimes with scaffolding and even more spontaneous.

This is a long speech, but worth reading thru I think.  At the very end, Duncan suggests a list of questions that journalists should be using to find the "true" common core story. 

Check out the list of things he suggests..... What would a teacher have told journalists to ask?
