    non-fiction
    We talked about students not having a purpose for selecting a text. We thought that it is important for us to stress that it is important for students to select a book that serves a purpose to learn, research, or enjoy.

    We also discussed the importance of the authors purpose for writing and that each purpose has meanings and clues that students can identify the specific purpose.

    Non-fiction strategies
    Our students seem to struggle more with non-fiction texts than they do with fiction texts. Singling out the strategies that will be most effective in teaching non-fiction reading. Through the wiki we found that Prior Knowledge Activation, Connection Making, and focusing on important words.

    Through our discussion we decided that prior knowledge before reading is very important so that the connections can be made. Some examples we had are: picture walks, kids coming up with questions to answer from the text (before or during reading), discussion questions prior to reading.

    Possessing books that are at students level is a concern of ours. Getting books on science, social studies topics is important and necessary for student success.
