Synopsis

Making Facts Matter Reading Non-Fiction 5-11 by Margaret Mallett

'There is little doubt that this is a book to which I shall return many times. It genuinely does enrich its readers' understanding' - Times Educational Supplement 'Warmly recommended for teachers and essential for the primary school library or staffroom' - School Librarian 'This is an illuminated and wise book, providing a convincing picture of the nature of primary school children and their work' - International Review of Children's Literature and Librarianship This book provides a sound theoretical base, as well as practical examples, on the use and enjoyment of non-fiction books in the classroom. Drawing on research studies from psychology and linguistics, the author brings together what is known about how children learn to read. She relates this specifically to how young readers become able to meet the demands of different kinds of non-fiction texts. She then shows how teachers can support children in becoming readers of non-fiction.
