Integrating informational texts in primary grades
MetadataShow full item record
A topic of debate that has been circulated around the education world for some time now is the issue of nonfiction literature. Research has shown that there is a scarcity of nonfiction in primary grade curriculum. There is ongoing discussion about the benefits of informational text. In my capstone project I am going to review the literature on the benefits and feasibility of using informational text in integrated primary instruction. In addition, I will use my findings to develop an integrated unit on wolves. I will produce lessons for this unit that include informational text and reflect effective instructional practice.
