Non-fiction anyone?

Everyday it seems many interesting e-mails float into my inbox. Last night I received my NCTE in box. This NCTE inbox focussed on non-fiction. I found a couple of very good articles etc. about using non-fiction from primary to high school as well as information about some interesting books, kits etc. You can also go to the NCTE blog and this week's posting is on non-fiction. Have a look! I found a very interesting book on using non fiction in a different way in the English classroom: Reading in the Reel World: Teaching Documentaries and Other Non-Fiction Text.

Now if you would like some Canadian content and find out the best Canadian non-fiction for children take a visit to the Vancouver Children's Literature Roundtable website. Note Author fest is on today at UBC with some great local writers!
