    If informational text means textbooks, then I would agree that other subjects have always taught informational texts. But if informational text means high quality primary source documents or literary nonfiction, then I would have to disagree.

    My brother suggested I might like this blog. He was entirely right. This post actually made my day. You can’t imagine just how much time I have spent thinking about this. Since when was English class just about literature? High school teachers are really shortchanging the kiddos. Think about it.

    I enjoyed reading this and stuck around for a while looking at the other articles. I think you have a very definite and proactive approach to teaching. This is critical at this time. Looking at different ways of learning, standards, and accountability is key to even begin looking at changing ed policy and our damaged system of education. Keep being brave and analyticaly.Thanks for sharing.
