Noting that students read and write nonfiction without noticing how the language of nonfiction shapes the subject they are studying, the articles in this journal demonstrate ways in which teachers can link their concern for language with their students' interest in content subjects. Titles of the 24 essays are as follows: (1) "Spreading the Word about Nonfiction: Notes from a School Librarian"; (2) "Library Resources for Nonfiction"; (3) "Some Readers Prefer Nonfiction"; (4) "A Primary Source Method of Teaching Biography"; (5) "From Biographical Research to Presentation to Writing"; (6) "In Search of Self and Others: Reading and Writing Autobiography"; (7) "Consider Autobiography"; (8) "How They Write: A Study of Writers' Self-Reports"; (9) Hot-Spots: The Journal as Nonfiction"; (10) "How Do You Spell 'Nonfiction'?"; (11) "Making Connections: Fiction and Nonfiction"; (12) "The Unexamined Life"; (13) "A Nonfiction Unit That Costs Less Than It Comes To"; (14) Generating Nonfiction: Writing Across the Curriculum"; (15) "American Studies: What Is It?"; (16) "Fiction and Nonfiction in U.S. History"; (17) "Using a Historic Site in a Writing Class"; (18) "Creating Readers Who Look for Something"; (19) "An Essay for Life" Joan Didion's 'On Self-Respect'"; (20) "Can 'The Meaning of Life' Have Meaning in High School?"; (21) "Bettelheim's 'Uses of Enchantment' as Part of a Storytelling Unit"; (22) "Gibbon's 'Decline and Fall': Nonfiction History as a Literary Classic"; (23) "Fiction, Nonfiction: Some New Elements with a Dash of History"; and (24) "Clue Me In: Mystery Stories with Exotic Backgrounds."
