Choose a non-fiction author to visit your school this year
Your school may have had a visit from a fiction author or a poet, but have you had a visit from a non-fiction author?
A non-fiction author visit is different and exciting. It offers an 'adventure in the real world' that boosts literacy and inspires reluctant readers (especially boys) with interesting subject matter. Experienced authors also guide children in the key skills of research, teamwork, negotiation, and co-operative learning.
