Fiction vs. Non-Fiction in Mr. Nava’s Class


The photograph portrays my students working on an activity with their bilingual pair; they were responsible for identifying the characteristics of fiction and non-fiction texts they were reading utilizing a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast the two stories. My students had to compare the two differences between the books; photographs for nonfiction and illustrations for fiction. The next step was for them to discuss the differences and similarities for each type of text; for example, author, purpose of writing, audience, etc. When my students were done with their activity, they had the opportunity to share their responses with the class and learn about differences and similarities in Fiction and Non-Fiction text.
