A Framework for Nonfiction in the Elementary Grades
Williams, T. Lee
Literacy Research and Instruction, v48 n3 p247-263 2009
The inclusion of nonfiction texts in the elementary classroom interests teachers and researchers alike. However, there is an inconsistent use of terms applied to this body of research, including informational texts, informational books, and expository texts, among others. In this article, an organizing framework for nonfiction is presented to facilitate a more precise understanding of the role and impact of different nonfiction forms. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
