Getting students to engage and understand nonfiction can be a challenge, and in the info-rich world we live in it has never been more important. This resource can be used to introduce the questioning stance students must use to interpret nonfiction effectively and as a visual support for lessons. You might choose to use it as an anchor chart, as a book mark for students, or as an outline upon which students can add their own notes as you teach.
This support was inspired and is based upon Kylene Beers and Robert E. Probst's work in Reading Nonfiction: Notice&Note Signposts and Questions. Do check their work out for great tips on improving students' understanding of nonfiction texts.
