ABSTRACT
The article examines "literary nonfiction" as a component of informational texts and considers the links between literary nonfiction and inquiry. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) introduced a focus on "literary nonfiction" in English/language arts and history and science to support its high expectations for reading. It cites the need to elevate books to meaning-making experiences to offer opportunities for students to turn their reading of literary nonfiction into research and writing.
