The book, Fiction and Nonfiction: Language Arts Units for Gifted Students in Grade 4 is a book that allows students to explore both fiction and nonfiction writing. As you begin into the book, you'll notice that the two are separated, fiction being the first to be taught and nonfiction second. While each is separated, they both still contain their own organized chapters which help the child understand what it takes and what goes into writing either fiction or nonfiction.
The guide is able to help children as well your students learn to write their own stories, memoirs and so much more! It's a book designed to allow them to engage in writing and learn how to understand the difference between the two. I really think it's pretty neat to have everything that you'll need to write your own story, plus activities that will help them come up with ideas to write about. This book really does help and is perfectly designed to give the child time to plan before creating their own stories in fiction and nonfiction. The setup is very nice, with exercises that focus on understanding different stories read and even movies that the child may have seen or read about, using words to explain and allow the reader to feel and relate to the character.
I honestly think it's just a very great guide for teaching. You start off learning and understanding fiction and nonfiction, breaking down other stories by different lessons. Next, you begin to write your own in each part. It's quite helpful and setup in a pretty nice way! Even if you want to just teach or go over one part, fiction or nonfiction you absolutely can with the separation. However, if there is time to cover both, you'll definitely enjoy teaching the two and how well set up each part is. It really makes teaching it super simple and fun!
