This publication features research, methods, and projects that enrich fiction study with nonfiction.  Alice Walker, Stephen King, Albert Einstein, Anne Frank, Elie Wiesel, and Hurricane Katrina combine to inspire informed impressions of our world. A question list guides reader response to nonexpository nonfiction. One article examines test preparation and critical thinking, emphasizing editorials, advertisements, and political speeches. Another stresses the importance of context in nonfiction. Multigenre text sets (fiction, criticism, and historic sources—film, interview, news maps, songs) provide foundation learning. Third graders’ biographies make wonderful use of many nonfiction sources. A high school teacher recounts success employing the six-trait scoring guide and an inspired prompt list. Also included: how reading “the classics” improves test scores, and an annotated bibliography of the best nonfiction children’s books since 1989.
