In this follow-up to his successful Reading in the Dark, John Golden offers strategies for teaching nonfiction by demonstrating that teaching students to "read" documentary films can help them identify and practice the skills that good readers need when they encounter other nonfiction texts. By tapping into students’ natural attraction to film, teachers can help students understand key concepts such as theme, tone, and point of view as well as practice and improve their persuasive, narrative, and expository writing abilities. Studying documentaries helps students learn how nonfiction texts are constructed and how these texts may shape the viewer’s/reader’s opinion. Includes classroom-tested activities, ready-to-copy handouts, and extensive lists of resources, and a discussion of more than 30 films.
