J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, December 31, 2013 11:14 AM

@PaulineZd  has good, practical insight that K-6 and secondary Enlish teachers need to increase their use of non-fiction texts.

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, January 6, 2014 6:36 PM

Short and practical ideas. But, remember that when the Common Core cites informational text as important, that means much more than reading narrative nonfiction. I find the use of the term "nonfiction novels" more than problematic. Call a book by its genre: generating an oxymoron is officious.

Strategic Reading: What the Mind Needs to Do to Read Nonfiction

Strategic Reading: What the Mind Needs to Do to Read Nonfiction | Common Core and Learning Intentions | Scoop.it

By Nancy Akhavan

 

Many children are not strategic readers of nonfiction text; they dive into reading nonfiction the same way they approach a story or a novel. But if students are to become literate readers in a world filled with an abundance of information, they need to be good readers and strategic readers. Strategic readers

establish goals for reading;select reading strategies appropriate for the text they are reading;monitor their reading to determine if they are comprehending or not; andhave a positive attitude toward reading.

Dyslexia Today's curator insight, November 10, 2013 8:13 PM

A good overview of what reading instruction really is, it is not about decoding text. When people argue that text to speech is not reading, we at Dyslexia Today argue that for a dyslexic it is all about getting to what this article is about. Learning about different types of text and how to handle each one.
