A perfect companion to Buss and Karnowski's popular Reading and Writing Literary Genres, this book brings the instruction of nonfiction texts to a level that educators can successfully take into the classroom. Learn how to teach nonfiction to elementary students with an emphasis on the author's purpose, allowing your students to gain a better idea of text types and how to read and write them more effectively. As students' awareness of nonfiction text expands, they'll come to feel confident reading, writing, and sharing these texts with others.

This resource shows how to explore with your students what nonfiction writing looks like and the purposes, structures, and literary elements that are inherent in nonfiction genres. The authors use teacher modeling and student discussions as the primary instructional strategies for presenting these structures and elements, and include student writing samples in all chapters.
