Teaching nonfiction reading skills can be difficult. Picking good fit books, comprehension before during and after reading, close reading, RACE strategy, nonfiction summaries, asking questions; there is just so much to cover. Not to mention, where do you even find all of the age appropriate readings to teach the needed strategies? Or the time to create all of the anchor charts needed for the classroom?
