This lesson plan is for ongoing discussion in the classroom on nonfiction text. If you have been going over nonfiction text in the classroom, this is a great lesson to have the students begin writing their own nonfiction books. You need to have a lot of nonfiction informational texts on their grade level available for them to do their own research and browsing. You can choose their topic to focus in on teaching a specific science or social studies topic as well.
This is the very early stages of research and pulling out the most important information from a text.
