My students love to read a variety of books. As we move back into face-to-face learning, I see students coming to middle school for the first time curious about all the possibilities of reading new and challenging texts, learning how to think deeply about characters, and allowing books to change them.
My students are interested in each other; in talking and sharing their thoughts about life.
These kids love the news - they love knowing what is going on in the world around them. They love stories about each other, themselves, and me!
The Narrative Non-fiction unit is a very important one for my 6th grade students. As they are becoming mature readers, they are starting to be ready to dig deeper into books and to search for and understand complex central ideas and see how those themes are woven through the entire book.
My students are ready for the challenge of Narrative Nonfiction, and I can't wait to see what they discover!
We will form small book clubs and engage in read-alouds, question generation, and rich in-depth discussions about each story. By having a selection of titles, I hope to be able to offer every child a tale on a topic they are interested in and will be excited to learn more about. They'll learn to take notes on the topic and then use these notes to create detailed essays, which they will also share in their book clubs.
