Writing nonfiction is an important skill that students will need throughout their school lives and beyond. This remarkable book is designed to help teachers develop a writing program that focuses on the different forms of nonfiction. It shows teachers how to help students recognize that they write because they have something to say; that to write well means considering intent and purpose, and choosing the most appropriate form of expression. Practical and comprehensive, this fourth book in Adrienne Gear's literacy "Powers" series will help teachers work with students to explore their Nonfiction Writing Powers: to Describe, to Instruct, to Compare, to Persuade, to Explain, and to Report. Ideal support for teaching writing in the content areas, the book includes methods for linking to Science, Social Studies, and other subject areas.

Adrienne Gear has been teaching in Vancouver, BC, for more than 25 years. She continues to stay grounded in the classroom, as well as providing workshops, demonstration lessons, and leadership training to teachers across Canada.
