This unit of study focuses on examining non-fiction as a genre – its types, traits, and purpose. Non-fiction presents facts, describes actual experiences, and states evidence of thinking. It includes 13 sessions for students to navigate non-fiction texts.
The unit of study is divided into three bends:
1. Readers build theories about the non-fiction genre and gather evidence to support their ideas.
2. Readers move from inference to interpretation.
3. Readers take time to celebrate their learning by reflecting on stories and on their own reading lives.
The resource is organized around thirteen big ideas of non-fiction texts. Each big idea, or session, has the following:
• Session Synopsis
• Anchor Chart(s)
• Group Investigation
• Reflective Task
