About this Learning Opportunity
Reading for information is an important life skill. Students who can read nonfiction texts will have an advantage as they move up through the higher grades in school. Exposing your students
to nonfiction texts and helping them acquire the skills to read them with understanding will greatly benefit them in school and in real life.
Participants will be involved in a 3-part series. The focus of sessions will include reading strategies to use with non-fiction, writing non-fiction text, and planning to infuse more non-
fiction into the work.
