Informational text is non-fiction written and intended to inform readers (and pre-readers) without reliance on characters.  How can preschool programs select informational text for children that don’t even know how to read?  Even if you are already using informational text in your program, you may not fully realize its connection to meeting State PreK  and Head Start Standards and how important it is for preparing children to enter the world of Common Core State Standards when they enter Kindergarten. This webinar will focus on key selection criteria you need to know to make decisions for implementation.

This session, presented by Jennifer Meyer and Sarah Novy, former teachers, and now, Classroom Specialists from Follett Early Learning, will focus on evaluating informational text for Pre-K classrooms.  Using examples of non-fiction text, you learn to identify and analyze quality non-fiction titles. You will leave the session with a title list of excellent examples of non-fiction titles, as well as an evaluation checklist that will help you select titles for your classroom.
