Lesson Plan - Get It!
What can be found inside of a book?
The contents of a book are exciting especially if it shares a story about something you are interested in or enjoy!
What’s inside some of your favorite books? Are there pictures, new words, funny stories, or new or familiar information?
Authors use their words as messages to readers for many different reasons. One example is to inform or share information with the reader. This is called nonfiction. When an author writes nonfiction, many facts are gathered before the writing is organized into a story for a reader.
For example, think about a vacation which you enjoyed or a special time you spent with your family. Discuss with your instructor the experience which made the time so memorable.
Thinking about this event and sharing its details is an example of nonfiction to inform. You shared details from your experience which, when combined, told a story! Authors use experiences and research of facts to write nonfiction this way.
