9781452286501: The Nonfiction Now Lesson Bank, Grades 4-8: Strategies and Routines for Higher-Level Comprehension in the Content Areas (Corwin Literacy)

What exactly makes The Nonfiction NOW Lesson Bank such a stand-out? If you consider the amount of instructional support, that alone is substantial enough to transform your teaching. But Nancy Akhavan happens to be an educator who has performed many roles over her career so she divests in this book just about everything in her professional vault

  • A whole new vision of teaching nonfiction
  • 50 powerhouse  lessons
  • A bank of short informational texts
  • Dozens of student  practice activities
  • Graphic organizers for taming textbooks

Unlike so many books, this one will live its life in actual use: dog-eared, sticky-noted, and loved.

Review:

"When you read this book what shines through is: Nancy is a teacher. Only a teacher would know that this is just-the-right book for teachers, right now. Right now, with the pressures to help kids read more and more complex texts, Nancy has a solution that is sensible. . . . Now, just as it's always been, it's about comprehension."--Jennifer Serravallo, Author of Independent Reading Assessment

"A practical look at teaching nonfiction texts. The ideas in this book will guide upper-elementary and middle school teachers toward success with the demands of reading for information. The lessons will get you started tomorrow and will allow for increased proficiency for students."--Douglas Fisher, Coauthor of Rigorous Reading

"I predict this will be one of the most dog-eared, tattered, sticky-noted books in your professional library. As teachers face the challenge of incorporating more nonfiction into our teaching, Nancy Akhavan has seamlessly blended research, critical foundational information and endlessly useful teaching tactics into one go-to resource."--Ellin Keene, Author of Talk About Understanding

"I love what Nancy Akhavan has done! She meshes best practices with what's best about the Common Core--and never loses sight of what motivates students to read in the first place: worthy texts and clear purposes for reading them. If I had to choose, what I love best are the lessons, organizers, and these great short texts--all for enhancing student understanding. I'm ready to use this book. Now!"--Leslie Blauman, Author of The Common Core Companion, Grades 3-5
