Strategies for Teaching Nonfiction Writing (Grades K–2 | 3–5), Linda Hoyt and Tony Stead

How do we best prepare children to write for real life? 

The CCSS is demanding more nonfiction writing, but how do teachers respond in a way that allows them to hold true to what children need? Here’s something you can use with your students tomorrow.

Watch Tony Stead demonstrate the Reading and Analyzing Nonfiction (RAN) Strategy DCBlog_HoytStead_RANchart.pdf (331.89 kb) in this clip.




In their six-session online course, Linda and Tony provide specific strategies that will increase children’s writing output and elevate their craft as you help them see nonfiction writing as a tool to express wonder about their world.

• Discover strategies for ensuring writers’ success with nonfiction

• Evaluate instruction against CCSS expectations and best practices

• Reflect on your practice and learn new instructional strategies

• Learn how and when to use these strategies across the curriculum

• Engage students in extended units that require research and writing
