A Brief Excerpt from a Nonfiction Minute Panel Discussion:
On November 4, 2014, four authors and our editor Jean Reynolds met with the faculty of the three Pennridge S. D. middle schools to discuss the Nonfiction Minute and ways to use it. The teachers had given us a list of questions, mostly about our thoughts on how to use the Minutes in the classroom. Our thinking is that the answer lay in the room with the teachers themselves. Some of us authors once were teachers, but we are out of touch. We need support from you. We are forming an Educational Advisory Board of teachers who will work to compile teacher resources to be published on this page. If you are interested in serving on this board, please contact Alex Siy.
