READING AND ANALYZING NONFICTION
Slant, Spin, Bias
Direct instruction, models, exercises, and writing assignments will help students learn how to read nonfiction, recognize an author’s biases, and ultimately avoid being swayed by them. All of the selections are completely unabridged, unadapted, and annotated so teachers can choose to teach the whole work or just a few pages. Includes both historically significant texts like the Declaration of Independence and contemporary pieces like Pulitzer Prize–winning editorials and blog entries by New York Times best-selling authors.
