7. 5 Kinds of Nonfiction - Rethinking Your Book Collection

Program: School Support Services: Library Media Services

Dates: 3/3/2021

Starting Soon
Most librarians and educators chose their careers because they connect strongly with stories and storytelling. They gravitate toward fiction and narrative nonfiction (books that tell true stories) because it feels comfortable and familiar. And yet, studies show that 42 percent of elementary students prefer expository nonfiction (books that inform, explain, or describe). An additional 33 percent enjoy expository and narrative texts equally. Research also indicates that info-loving kids are significantly more likely to thrive as readers if they have access to a rich, diverse array of expository nonfiction. It's critically important to curate collections that will appeal to all children.

In this engaging, interactive session, award-winning children's nonfiction author Melissa Stewart breaks down the 5 Kinds of Nonfiction for children's books (four of which have an expository writing style); offers tips for collection development; and suggests small group, whole-class, and whole-school activities that highlight a broad range of nonfiction titles.

When students understand the 5 Kinds of Nonfiction, they can predict the type of information they're likely to find in a book and how that information will be presented. They can also quickly and easily identify the best books for a particular purpose as well as the kinds of nonfiction books they enjoy reading most.

Attendees will leave this session with:

1. A clear understanding of the difference between narrative and expository nonfiction and the importance of including a rich array of expository books in their collections

2. An appreciation of the 5 Kinds of Nonfiction classification system and how each category is best used in a school setting

3. Age-appropriate activities for introducing and reinforcing the 5 Kinds of Nonfiction to students

4. Strategies for incorporating a diverse assortment of nonfiction books into their existing curriculum
