Documentaries and Nonfiction offers a creative and innovative approach to teaching nonfiction reading strategies within all disciplines. The critical thinking skills students learn while “reading” documentaries will transfer naturally to their reading of nonfiction print texts. Using documentaries to build nonfiction reading skills makes concepts like propaganda, irony, audience, tone, and bias accessible and tangible for students. The teaching of nonfiction will be enhanced by the engaging strategies and resources featured in this course. The increased emphasis on nonfiction texts in the Common Core State Standards makes this course more important than ever.
