Chalk Talk: The Importance of Non-Fiction Literacy
As states across the country have begun to implement the national Common Core standards, the focus in Language Arts has shifted to Non-Fiction literacy. This shift is a result of a growing consensus that students need to be better prepared for college and career life after high school. The majority of what adults read on a daily basis is Non-Fiction and it is important for students to understand how to read this type of text and the differences that come with it. Non-Fiction literature is full of text features such as headings, captions, and footnotes. These features contain meaningful information that may be missed if a student is not aware of its importance. Non-fiction texts are also written in certain formats such as compare/contrast, instructional, and persuasive. Knowing what these formats entail can greatly help students understand the information contained in the texts. Being able to read and comprehend this genre is a crucial skill in order for students to be successful.
