Exploring Non - Fiction

Help me give my students non fiction books to help expand their knowledge of animals and historical figures as we begin to study informational text in reading and writing, while studying animal habitats in science.

My Students

This year I will be teaching Middle School Cross Categorical Special Education. Most of my students either have a learning disability or autism. They come from low income or single parent households. In addition, 4% of students in my school are ESOL, and we are projected to increase enrollment by 100 students this year.

In our school of 450 students, they speak a total of 17 different languages.

They also come from a variety of different backgrounds. Students come from all over the city to attend our school. Our school is a Midwest urban middle school, where 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Thank you for supporting students with a great need.

My Project

In Readers and Writers Workshop students are beginning to learn about informational texts. In science, we are studying different types of animals and their habitats. Access to interesting books of various reading levels is a must in keeping adolescents engaged in reading for that long of a time. Many non fiction books are made for advanced readers. Many of my students are struggling readers so I want my students to have books that they can read and comprehend on their own with little help. My goal as a teacher is to make kids better readers, and I am able to do that when I can provide students with engaging fun books!
