Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Prose literature--Study and teaching (Early childhood);
In the body of this paper, educators will find answers to some questions that they have concerning non-fiction literature. These questions include: What does research say about incorporating non-fiction material into the classroom: how much non-fiction material should I have in my classroom; and how do I pick out quality non-fiction material?
Educators will also be able to look at three different non-fiction lesson plans. Each lesson plan will use a different type of non-fiction literature to give educators a well rounded view of non-fiction literature. There will also be a section about locating nonfiction books, to give educators a head start in their own quest to develop good nonfiction literacy skills for themselves and their students. This will help educators develop a more complete library for their classroom, and it will tell how to incorporate non-fiction literature in lesson plans.
