14592 • Nonfiction Texts in Secondary ELA-Cullowhee

Through no fault of its own, nonfiction writing has earned a reputation as something to be suffered through. Consider, however, that the Oscar-nominated films Into the Wild; Girl, Interrupted; and Seabiscuit –to name only three—all began life in the bookstore on the nonfiction shelves. Great informational text can be just as compelling as great fiction. In this program, participants will examine a variety of literary nonfiction, from travel and nature writing to investigative journalism. They will learn how to employ such texts in their classrooms to increase student interest and support or extend their reading and writing skills. This program is recommended for secondary teachers.
