Nonfiction Writing Power

Nonfiction writing is important in a student's school life and it is a skill that they will use throughout their lives. The majority of our daily reading and writing experience is made up of nonfiction, and students are writing nonfiction long before they are taught how to do it in the classroom. They need to recognize that writing nonfiction is far more than the traditional descriptive reports about animals. The principles of nonfiction writing apply to all student writing, even the tweets, texts, and blogs they compose.
