With nonfiction and informational text at the forefront of the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS), there are new demands and opportunities for reading, writing, speaking and listening for students.

Hear directly from some of today’s leading children’s and young adult nonfiction authors as they speak about their work and the specific ways nonfiction and informational texts can be used by  librarians and teachers to help their students become better readers. This panel will also explore the ways in which the following focus points connect to the Common Core State Standards for Reading and Writing:

  • Content Relevancy
  • Drawing from Primary and Secondary Sources for Research
  • Balancing Perspectives within a Text
  • Stylistic Choices

Deborah Hopkinson, Annie and Helen (Random House)
Steve Sheinkin, Bomb (Macmillan)
