Thank you! This description of the lesson idea and the examples via the illustrations are helpful -- we keep urging teachers to focus on nonfiction, but then don't offer enough strategies to help them engage the students. This does exactly that! I especially like the progressive steps of the lesson throughout the week and the collaborative element that allows students to talk about the articles.

It would be wonderful if you also could offer a list of resources where we can find nonfiction articles -- my focus is on high school students and many are low-level readers, so it would be great to find high-interest topics to start the process.
