Developed for a high school quinmester unit on nonfiction, this guide provides the teacher with teaching strategies for an introduction to nonfiction as a form of writing dealing with truth, facts, and ideas. Various classifications of nonfiction are investigated, including the biography, the essay, and true tales of great adventure, with required readings on each. The range of content covers various types of nonfiction, unique qualities of nonfiction, and writing examples of nonfiction. The course is developed so that it concerns itself more with personal values of reading and writing nonfiction than with the formal listing of conventions and terminology. The guide is arranged according to performance objectives with suggested teaching strategies listed under each objective. A list of student and teacher resources (state-adopted textbooks, reference books, and films) is provided. (HOD)
