Increasing Nonfiction Reading with Article of the Week

February 16, 2018

Nonfiction can easily get overlooked in favor of literature in ELA courses, so using article of the week is a great way to incorporate more nonfiction readings. This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about implementing article of the Week. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed how they implement article of the week in their classroom. Teachers also shared how they structure and mark student responses. Read through the chat for ideas to implement in your own classroom.

Read through the chat below to find out where to find great nonfiction readings. You'll get ideas about how to differentiate based on students' interests and reading levels. You'll also find resources to help you implement article of the week in your own classroom if you are just getting started.

Hope you'll join us next week for another chat. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
