Reflection: Unit Exams Nonfiction Unit Assessment - Section 2: Assessment


During a nonfiction unit of study, students encounter different types of text, such as newspaper and magazine articles, textbook passages, and video clips. They have gained experience in the use of reading strategies that aid comprehension of nonfiction. Exploring text structure and text features common to nonfiction is also part of this unit of study. I model working with this type of text and students have opportunities for guided practice and are given assignments to complete with independence. Now it is time for students to show what they know by summarizing a non-fiction text on their own.
