Reading Workshop

To become proficient readers of nonfiction, your students need to know the difference between fact and opinion. This will support their growth as critical readers; is the author presenting a fact or an opinion? Share this video to help them understand the difference.

Fact VS Opinion:


Writing Workshop

Celebrating writing is a wonderful way to cap your unit!

Creating a class museum as a culminating event at the end of your nonfiction unit is an engaging and fun idea. This provides students with the opportunity to share and communicate their learning through their written pieces. Inviting other classes to visit the museum provides an audience of their peers.

The video, (link below), shows the structure of a museum and can be adapted to showcase your students' publications.
