2nd Quarter Wider Reading

This quarter I want you to read non-fiction during our reading slot. You must complete one full-length text and at least one of each of the other non-fiction types listed here. You must blog a response to your reading once a week (you can choose which day) and I have put some prompts on the same sheet to help you think about what you have read.  Non-fiction texts will make up 80% of your reading once you leave school so it is important to understand how each text requires a subtle shift in how we approach it and what we get out of it.  We will also do some dedicated teaching/learning on non-fiction texts and their features during this quarter so I want you to be conversant with this literature. 

There is an explanation of what I am looking for in the reading journal here.
