In this blog post, you'll learn how to use the metaphor of surgery to teach your students nonfiction or informational reading strategies. Find everything you will need in a step-by-step format, starting with a list titled "Text Feature Surgery Supplies" with lots of photos for picturing what the lessons will look like in your classroom. There is a "printable" suggested in this blog post that is not free; however, there is a generous amount of free ideas. Be sure to explore the Travelicious Teacher blog for many other ideas and teaching lessons for your classroom.

In the Classroom

Your students won't even realize how much they are learning about reading while participating in this fun, hands-on nonfiction reading unit. Look through the steps and quickly adapt the lessons to your own classroom. At the end of the unit ask individuals or small groups of students to enhance their learning by photographing their bulletin boards and creations and uploading them to a tool like Screenshot, reviewed here, or Tolks, reviewed here, to demonstrate what they learned about nonfiction reading comprehension.
