What Can You Learn About Teaching from Nonfiction Authors?

With the Common Core State Standards' new emphasis on nonfiction literature and reading and writing across a range of texts, we think there is much that teachers can learn from authors and illustrators of nonfiction picture books and chapter books. One place to start might be this article about the School Library Journal Leadership Summit panel, “Nonfiction at the Forefront of the Common Core," that Mary Ann led in October.

You can still sign-up for and listen to the School Library Journal webinar from January 2013, which recreated the panel in order to read a wider audience. You can register for "on-demand" access through April.
