Readers need to approach fiction and non-fiction differently. This poster helps students understand the difference in approaches. When approaching a fictional text, readers can bite right in and begin. When approaching a non-fiction text, readers need to slow down. The peel needs to be taken off. Compare this to previewing the table of contents. Non-fiction is usually broken into sections the same way an orange is broken into sections. If you really want to make this idea sink in, you can have a student model eating an apple and an orange.
