Unit 2: Becoming Experts Reading Nonfiction

The second unit of Reader’s Workshop, Becoming Experts Reading Nonfiction, is broken into 3 parts. The first bend focuses students’ attention on growing knowledge as they pay attention to details, put parts of text together and question texts. Bend II works to tackle both the tricky word work and vocabulary development student need to navigate nonfiction reading. Bend III sets readers up to grow knowledge across texts as they read topic sets, comparing, contrasting and connecting information across texts and text sets and doing the vocabulary work that accompanies nonfiction reading.
