Explorations in Nonfiction Writing

While exploring a range of real-world nonfiction texts, Linda Hoyt and Tony Stead's Explorations in Nonfiction Writing supports teachers in guiding their students to work collaboratively as researchers and develop their skills as writers. In addition to learning how to access, interpret, and publish informational texts, students will also consider ways to activate their voice and make their nonfiction writing clearer, more authoritative, and better organized.

This grade-by-grade Curricular Resource contains:
  • a lesson book containing all of the core resources needed to plan, teach, and assess nonfiction writing
  • In grades K–2, a Big Book of Mentor Texts provides an anthology of exemplar nonfiction texts in an expansive format
  • In grades 3–5, mentor texts are provided as posters and as reproducible blackline masters
  • Each unit also has a guide to teaching nonfiction writing which explains how to integrate nonfiction writing throughout the day, including how to conduct effective minilessons and writing conferences.
