Nonfiction Reading Power

Details

While reading for content is important, reading for meaning is essential. But as teachers, how can we best support our students to move from ‘re-telling’ to ‘re- thinking’ informational texts? In this session, Adrienne will review the key concepts of Reading Power and the levels of understanding – from literal to interactive. She will focus on specific reading strategies to support readers of nonfiction text, including: zoom in (to nonfiction features), determine importance, connect and question. She will share lessons, student samples and recommended anchor books. As always, Adrienne’s sessions are very practical, so you will leave with lessons you can use in your classroom tomorrow!


Objectives and Outcomes

  • Explore nonfiction reading strategies: zoom in, determine importance, connect and question
  • Review different levels of understanding informational texts
  • Move from re-telling to ‘re-thinking’ when reading informational texts
