Writing: Nonfiction

In Search of the Facts: Teaching Non-fiction Writing in the K-3 Classroom

This could also be K-6 or 3-6


Over 80% of the writing we do as adults is non-fiction yet over 90% of the writing we do in the classroom is narrative. This workshop will examine methods of getting our children to become successful writers for many different purposes and audiences. Items to be addressed will include : methods of helping children read non fiction and collect information without copying, giving children a structure to help them write, strategies in assessment and evaluation, overcoming the "I don't know what to write about" syndrome, teaching the conventions of writing such as punctuation and spelling , a look at valuable resources, effective strategies in classroom management and scheduling.
