Nonfiction Classroom Books

State standards increasingly expect students to be able to read, write, and learn from nonfiction books and current estimates show that fifty percent to eighty percent of the reading passages in standardized tests are nonfiction. A lack of nonfiction is the most common deficit in classroom libraries. They should consist of forty to sixty percent nonfiction books, including a variety of genres such as biographies and autobiographies, history, reference and informational texts, that will give students the experience they need to succeed in an information age.
