Podcast: Using nonfiction to engage kids

May 18th, 2009

“School situations should mirror what’s happening in the real world, and kids should be writing real-world stuff–they shouldn’t just be writing for their teachers…nonfiction opens up that range of possibilities.”

We recorded our latest Author Conversations podcast with Lynne Dorfman and Rose Cappelli, authors of Nonfiction Mentor Texts, at the IRA Convention in Minneapolis. Listen as Lynne and Rose talk about how nonfiction engages kids and how mentor texts build on this engagement by showcasing the passion and voice of nonfiction authors in a wide range of genres.
