Can you select nonfiction texts that speak to you? Or are you more or less provided with certain texts that you have to cover? I love the idea that nonfiction texts can turn more boys onto reading. Though I imagine so much of kids aversion to reading is making them read texts they cannot relate to. Fiction or non-fiction, kids deserve to read things that have meaning for them.
I have a lot of freedom when it comes to selecting texts. For a few years I was paired with a history teacher and we chose a lot of our material together and I think I am still in that mindset when selecting my nonfiction pieces.
I do believe that nonfiction has a significant place in all classrooms and it has its advantages. I am just concerned that we are pushing some things aside that are near and dear to my heart. I am also Ina school district that does not have many (two maybe) nonfiction books to choose from for a whole class read. I am so torn over the issue of teaching fiction vs. nonfiction. I love to read; reading is what got me into English in the first place.
When planning for teaching fiction I first ask myself, “what is it about this text that I can get my students to love?" When planning to tean a nonfiction text I first ask myself, “what is it about this text that won’t easily understand?" This difference does not exist because I could not get my students love a piece of nonfiction it is exists because it is how I was taught as a student of English literature. My five years of schooling were not focused on the merit of, and how to teach, documents from a historical perspective, or how to find the meaning behind a set of instructions to a vacuum.
I see the value in nonfiction. I teach American Literature and AP Language and Composition, so nonfiction is a big part of my day. The problem is nonfiction is not what I love and I am worried that it shows while I am teaching.
