Nonfiction is "No Nonsense"

Have your class participate in a discussion of the nonfiction genre. Do they enjoy it? Is it boring? Then have them demonstrate the author's purpose by writing an expository text. They view various types of nonfiction and take notes on each work's organization and presentation. Finally, they write a brief essay that demonstrates the understanding of the author's purpose in an expository text.
