Resources for Educators: Narrative Nonfiction & Expository Nonfiction

More and more, teachers are requesting educational resources that go beyond traditional teachers guides and activity sheets. So while I do still have those kinds of materials on my website, I’m also offering resources that delve deeply into the nonfiction reading and writing process from an author’s point of view. 

Some of these resources focus on books I’ve written and describe various stages of my creative process in detail, while others provide more general information  and highlight books written by a wide variety of nonfiction authors.  

On Mondays this year, I’m going to be sharing some of these resources and providing ideas for how they might be used in the classroom. Today, I’m going to focus on the Narrative Nonfiction & Expository Nonfiction section, which you can access by clicking on the Nonfiction Reading Resources icon.


This section includes an explanation of the two writing styles, an article with several comparative passages, suggestions for determining your students’ preferred style, a wonderful essay about the benefits of expository nonfiction by author Jess Keating, and 50 recommended titles—25 with an expository writing style, and 25 with a narrative writing style.

I hope you’ll take a look at these resources.
