    Do you have students whose nonfiction writing is formulaic, devoid of energy and voice?

In Making Nonfiction from Scratch, professional development and children's book author Ralph Fletcher offers a candid critique of how nonfiction writing is often taught in schools and gives teachers the inspiration and strategies they need to help their students write authentic nonfiction. Ralph emphasises the power of choice, mentor texts and nonfiction read-alouds in making nonfiction an everyday part of classrooms.
