Better Together: Boosting Engagement by Pairing Fiction Series and Nonfiction
Wednesday, September 21, 2016
3-4 PM EST,12-1 PM PST


Pairing fiction and nonfiction texts can be a boon for teaching elementary, middle-grade, and high school students, creating a more dynamic learning environment while boosting understanding. Teaching “text sets” (fiction and non-fiction books on a related topic) has been shown to increase student interest, improve comprehension, and bolster critical thinking skills.* The more familiar narrative fiction introduces the topic and acts as an educational “bridge” to more in-depth nonfiction study.

Our panel of librarians and curriculum professionals will show which popular series chapter books, middle grade fiction, and YA readers pair perfectly with nonfiction texts and offer suggestions on bridging fiction and nonfiction reading in the library and classroom.
