    Within that we will also be looking at reading non-fiction. Much of the reading done in high school English classrooms is either fiction, in the form of novels, short stories, and poetry, or in the form of more academic non-fiction, like textbooks. Students can get very little exposure to less academic non-fiction, like the kind you might find and read in a newspaper, magazine, or on the internet. It requires a different skill set when approaching non-fiction writing and with the little exposure students are receiving in school to the more commonly read versions of non-fiction in the “real” world, they are at a disadvantage. So, by focusing an entire unit on mostly non-fiction , non-textbook texts (there is only one piece of fiction, and those are lyrics from a song), I am giving students an opportunity to be exposed to this sort of non-fiction and develop skills in how to work with it.
