Description:  Learn how to use Subtext and Schoology to provide a variety of non-fictional materials (articles and videos) connected to the lesson content. Help students recognize and connect the themes that are present in the stories of all the informational sources. Students strengthen their compare-contrast skills through oral discussion and essay-writing.

I will use the end-unit for the sixth grade core literature novel, Julie of the Wolves, to illustrate the common core strategies to integrate non-fiction materials with Subtext and Schoology, including articles, videos, and personal narratives.  I will also share how we integrated classroom discussions about character traits and life events to support development of the final essay.
