Where Does it Go?
Transcript of Where Does it Go?
Nonfiction text will give true and factual information. It will not include narratives (stories) or opinions. Though the characters telling the story may be made up (as in Max Axiom Super Scientist) the text is accurate and true. Nonfiction books are organized in the library according to subject matter. They are given call numbers then organized alphabetically by the author's last name.
Fiction text is made up in the imagination of the writer. Though the characters may seem real, or may be based on actual people or events, the story did not really happen. They are organized in the library alphabetically by the author's last name.
I can quote accurately from the text or use details as examples from the text to infer the literary genre of the text.

This kind of fiction is often set in the future or on another planet. It describes possible future events, travel to other galaxies, or tells tales of possible future inventions.
These are stories of imaginary people based on real historical events. They may also describe imaginary events that might have happened to real people.
These are imaginary stories that happen to imaginary people, but the events are believable enough to seem real. These stories often help us learn about ourselves.
Fairy Tales and Fantasy
These stories are about dragons, wizards, and other imaginary places and people who might be magic. Wizardry, witchcraft, talking plants and animals, and a battle between good and evil are often described in fairy tales and fantasies.
Mystery and Adventure
These stories often describe exciting imaginary journeys to interesting places where there is a problem or crime to be solved. These stories present obstacles for the characters to overcome and are full of suspense and climax.
Biographies and Autobiographies
These are true stories about real people. They describes the successes and failures of the lives of real people. Autobiographies are stories a person writes about him or herself. Biographies are stories told about one person and written by another person.
Poetry and Drama
Known as classic literature, poetry and drama are often put in the nonfiction section of the library. Some poems and drama can be fiction, such as Love That Dog by Sharon Creech.
Dewey Decimal System
Nonfiction books are given a number from the Dewey Decimal System of classification. This classification system divides books into ten main categories. For instance, Math and Science books are found in the 500s and Arts and Recreation are found in the 700s sections, respectfully.
After reviewing literary genres together as a class, you will work with your partner to analyze text cards to infer the literary genre. You will use evidence or examples from the text to justify your decision.
