student is responsible for reading nonfiction books each quarter. All
students need one point of nonfiction this quarter. They must read a
biography or autobiography for 3rd quarter. I encourage students to read
a book on a topic they know a little about to help with comprehension.
Non-fiction reading is more challenging than fiction for many students.
I recently had a grant funded through Donors' Choose; therefore, I
received over fifty non-fiction books for students to read. Topic vary
from Thomas Jefferson to Neil Armstrong to J.K. Rowling. I encourage
students to use my classroom, the school library, or the Streator Public
Library to find a good non-fiction book that interests them!
