READING

We will learn the about fiction and non fiction. We will learn the differences and similarities in the two genres and we will compare them. Students should be able to identify a book or reading passage as fiction or non fiction and justify their reasoning. Also, students should be able to compare and contrast text features in both genres such as table of contents, glossary, index, characters and plot etc.
