Increasing evidence shows that young children benefit from reading instruction that includes information text. Education organizations, U.S. state mandates, and standardized tests all call for children to effectively read information, yet emphasis on using narrative texts with young readers persists in the early literacy community. Teachers who are unsure about how to bring information text into their curricula will find expert guidance in this book, which demonstrates that these texts can be as effective as narrative texts in early reading instruction. The authors provide suggestions for developing classroom libraries and choosing quality information texts that you can use with all children. They also offer real-life examples that demonstrate the success of information texts in a variety of settings, such as inclusive classrooms and self-contained special education classrooms.
