Nonfiction as Mentor Text

Nonfiction as Mentor Text | Oakland County ELA Common Core | Scoop.it

"Many people still hold to the belief that nonfiction writing is “just the facts,” often synonymous with formulaic, dull writing. Nothing could be further from the truth! For years, authors of all genres have honed their writing by reading literary nonfiction by the likes of David McCullough, Anna Quindlen, John McPhee, Susan Orlean, and so many others."

Just did a booktalk for 8th grade with non-fiction titles that coincided with a fiction - they literally flew off the shelves. This is why libraries & librarians are SO important in Common Core.
Matt Weld's curator insight, April 14, 2013 8:30 PM

Great article that talks about how authors of nonfiction use the same skills in their craft that we are asking of students.  Links at the end to other good, related articles, too.

Gail Donahue's curator insight, April 17, 2013 11:11 AM

This could be excellent background reading for content area teachers when trying to implement writing across the curriculum.

Lynnette Van Dyke's curator insight, May 1, 2013 2:31 PM

The Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education fully supports the implementation of the Common Core State Standards in Georgia.  Best practice research tells us that the Common Core builds on previous GPS standards and improves them. 

Our concern is around the high level of inaccurate information circulating about the Common Core.  They are not a national curriculum and these are not standards decided on by the federal government.  The standards were created by a consortium of states (led by Georgia) and local districts are still free to make decisions concerning curriculum, texts, and how their school system operates.

James magazine ran an abbreviated Georgia Partnership article in their March/April 2013 edition.  Here is the complete story which includes the Core's background in the state and a teacher's perspective (Georgia's 2011 Teacher of the Year, Pam Williams).

Check this Morris News Service article about Senate Bill 167 which would have required Georgia withdraw from the 45 state Common Core State Standards consortium.  It includes a quote from Georgia Partnership President Steve Dolinger.  The Bill was pulled from consideration before a vote as taken.  Growing opposition in Georgia signals a similar bill may be reintroduced in 2014
