All About Facts

My students need access to more non-fiction books in our classroom library.

My Students

It is exciting when learning to read with a purpose is like reading to learn facts! Many of my students would prefer reading fiction books because it can be frustrating for them to think about reading for information.

We have a mixed population of special education and general education students in an inclusion classroom setting.

My students come from a wide variety of backgrounds. They bring to class a range of experiences, knowledge, and abilities. All of my students work hard to challenge themselves to work towards personal goals for learning and need the tools to help them be successful.

My Project

Learning to read is the first step to reading to learn. Unfortunately, many of my students have not yet mastered the first and are expected to do the second. By having sets of nonfiction texts that are at the exact readability level for my students, they will be able to work on both skills at the same time and feel confidence about their learning. They will be able to make independent book choices, knowing that they will be able to consider only a book's topic, and not whether or not it is too hard for them or if they won't understand it.

Being able to learn from what we read is an important life skill.

By providing my students with access to readable nonfiction texts, we are setting the foundation to develop future research skills and we are creating a confidence in students' abilities to learn on their own by seeking knowledge from books. My students will be able to make independent choices about what to read and feel good about guiding their own learning because of this project!
