Student work sample: Kilauea

This student assignment about Kilauea demonstrates a familiarity with the elements of nonfiction books. The student has incorporated some of these into her work — from the attention-grabbing header “Did you know?” to the side-by-side text-and-image page layout. When students receive explicit instruction about the elements that contribute to the effective communication of information, they are more likely to incorporate those features into their own work.
