For decades, we’ve classified fiction as a way to study, understand, and, ultimately, teach it better. However, up to now, nonfiction hasn’t received this same level of intention. In 5 Kinds of Nonfiction: Enriching Reading and Writing Instruction with Children’s Books, Melissa Stewart and Marlene Correia present a new way to sort nonfiction into five major categories and show how doing so can help teachers and librarians build stronger readers and writers. Along the way, they:
- introduce the 5 kinds of nonfiction—active, browseable, traditional, expository literature, and narrative—and explore each category through discussions, classroom examples, and insights from leading children’s book authors;
- offer tips for building strong, diverse classroom and library collections;
- provide more than 20 activities to enhance literacy instruction; and
- include innovative strategies for sharing and celebrating nonfiction with students.
