Course content

  • Building on research of the past 30 years, we start with an overview of ways in which literacy research, education policy, publishing and new technologies have framed approaches to teaching nonfiction. Understanding approaches to working with nonfiction We reflect on what we have learnt from different approaches, as well as assessing their relative strengths and limitations. We propose a way of engaging critically with nonfiction materials to help children develop subject expertise as well as literacy across a variety of formats. Areas of focus:
  • A quick review of different approaches to using nonfiction and the range of purposes
  • Things to consider when choosing nonfiction for the classroom and for teaching
  • Reading and writing like a historian
  • Reading and writing like a scientist
  • Building academic vocabulary
  • Nonfiction and fiction working together to build subject knowledge
  • Nonfiction and reading for pleasure
  • A planning framework.
