Apples & Oranges

One of the people in my PLN on twitter is Angela Maiers, an educational author and consultant who has some wonderful resources available on her website. Be sure to visit there.

Her model lesson with Grade 4 students on fiction and non-fiction reading is terrific. Angela uses an apples and oranges metaphor to differentiate between non-fiction and fiction reading. I love this metaphor. Such a simple and effective way to illustrate both the importance of balanced reading and the different way we read fiction and non-fiction books.
