Product Description
This nonfiction reading response activity includes a link to a nonfiction article (about school suspensions and their effectiveness), close reading options, writing prompts, extension activities, and a complete lesson plan. You will have student buy-in with the current topic of restorative justice in schools!

Responding to nonfiction is a lifelong skill. Students need to understand a writer's purpose, the publisher and research's bias, manipulative language, and more. Almost every college professor asks students to judge and critique nonfiction writing. This will allow students to practice responding in this manner.

This nonfiction activity also relates to students on a personal level. Research in the article covers the effectiveness of suspensions and the problems associated with them. Students become very involved with the discussion and reading.

Highlights:
→Detailed lesson plans for the article and writing assignment. Includes the link to the article (and extension activities).
→Ten questions specific to the article and an alternative set of questions (for differentiation).
→Instructional sheets for the students for crafting a mature nonfiction reading response.

The reading, discussion, and writing takes me a week of classes.

(The preview for this nonfiction reading response activity includes pages two and four of the lesson plan.)
