Nurture nonfiction reading comprehension skills

As educators, we know that encouraging our students to read nonfiction text has many powerful benefits.

Nonfiction text introduces our students to unfamiliar vocabulary, new experiences, a curiosity of the world around them, and so much more. Reading nonfiction text helps our students with increasing their vocabulary and world knowledge, increase comprehension through the use of contextual cues, promotes critical thinking and analysis of text that includes graphs, diagrams, charts, tables, and more.

We've put together a short, one pager that provides students with 9 Nonfiction Reading Discussion Questions for an approachable way to help nurture reading comprehension strategies.

  • Use the nonfiction reading discussion questions to get students to think critically about the text.

  • Help students to connect the selection to the world around them or other text selections

  • Expand a child's vocabulary and teach them how to use context clues when encountering unfamiliar words.

In this free download resource designed to use with students, you'll receive the following:
