    Inside Information

    by Nell K. Duke

    Most teachers understand the importance of teaching children to read and write informational text. But how do they do it effectively? And in a way that is truly engaging? Nell K. Duke has the answer. With this book she shows teachers how to build skills in reading and writing major informational text types—informative/explanatory persuasive: opinion procedural/how-to nonfiction narrative and biography—through project-based instruction. Children read
    and write for real purposes and real audiences on topics that matter to them. In the process they make a difference in the world.
    Drawing from the latest research Duke explains how to design and carry out instruction providing a blueprint for developing project-based units from start to finish—units that move children through a logical progression of phases:
    • Project Launch
    • Reading and Research
    • Writing and Research
    • Revision and Editing
    • Presentation and Celebration

    Packed with clear precise connections to Common Core State Standards classroom-tested teaching ideas and the work of practicing teachers and their students this book will be an essential resource for years to come. 208 pages.
