This 105-page unit will help you teach your students strategies for reading and understanding informational / nonfiction text (biographies, history texts, and science texts). The lessons teach comprehension, decoding, fluency, vocabulary, and discussion strategies.

The lessons and materials included in this curriculum will help your students become engaged readers who use strategies flexibly, record their thinking on sticky notes and in reading journals, and share their reading and thinking with other students.

During this unit, your students will learn to:
- Comprehend, take notes on, and talk productively about different types of nonfiction
- Use before, during, and after reading strategies effectively
- Decode tricky words in nonfiction texts
- Use multiple strategies to figure out the meaning of a new word in nonfiction text
- State the main idea of a paragraph of text and of an entire text
- Ask and find answers to questions about nonfiction texts
- Talk and write about events in a history text in chronological order
- Talk and write about the events in a famous person's life, and explain how those events shaped them as a person
- Explain why an author might have written a biography about someone
- Participate in nonfiction book clubs with other students

Here’s what the unit includes:
- 33 detailed minilessons
- 4 different sections: general nonfiction reading strategies, strategies for reading history texts, strategies for reading biographies, and strategies for reading science/technical texts
- Unit goals and Common Core alignment for each lesson
- Posters to support unit concepts
- Printable materials, including reading strategy cards and graphic organizers, to accompany the minilessons
- Writing prompts for students to glue into reading journals
- 11 pages of tips and real photographs to help you implement reading workshop in your classroom, learn how to confer with students, and organize your materials.
- 8 pages of printable materials: calendars, note-taking sheets, parent letters (English & Spanish) reading log, and classroom organization tools
- 10 pages of checklists and assessment tools, including lists of concepts to teach during reading conferences and small group instruction

Each minilesson will last 10 or 15 minutes and is designed to be taught before students go off to read independently.

The entire unit will last for approximately 6-7 weeks.
