Comprehsible Input Non-fiction Library
Major errors, broken links, copyright violation, etc? Please report any problem with the CI Non-fiction Library to the "Report an Issue" form below or email ProfeElote@gmail.com.
Errors: The CI Non-fiction library is designed as a safe place for teachers to share their non-fiction texts written for their classroom with the hopes that other teachers will also share. Just like the language learners that each teacher serves, each teacher is at a different level of proficiency and not all are experts in the language they choose to submit. As such and in order to encourage as many teachers as possible to provide texts to this wonderful resource and keep it a free service supported by countless teacher voluntarily sharing their works, some texts accepted may include minor errors. Texts that have many errors or major errors should be reported using the "Report an Error" form below but texts with minor errors will be accepted in order to allow more dedicated teachers the opportunity to share and to make available a larger and more diverse offering in the library. Within the terms of the work's license and the terms of copyright, feel free to make corrections to texts that you will share with your students. Please remember that it is much easier to edit a text, then to create a brand new text from scratch.
Copyright information and take-down requests: All individuals submitting to the CI non-fiction library affirm that they have the right to submit their submission and that it is licensed for use under a creative commons license. If a work that you are the legal copyright owner is included in the library please email ProfeElote@gmail.com and it will be removed as soon as possible from the library.
