UNIT OVERVIEW

In this unit students will understand what text features are and how they aid in comprehension of nonfiction text, the difference in primary and secondary sources, and how to determine credible sources.  Because students spend most of their time reading nonfiction in science and social studies, it is beneficial to complete this unit towards the beginning of the school year.  Throughout the year students can continue to talk about these concepts with the readings they use in all subjects.
