Dear F&P Authors,


I have a few teachers who have questions about the Level V text, A Call for Change. They feel that it is a nonfiction expository text and that it would be difficult to know that the character Rachel is not real. We talked about the first section of the text and it being expository fiction, but any additional pieces of information I can share would be great.

Thanks!

The text analysis on page 163 of the Assessment Guide explains the characteristics of this text that makes it fit as a good measure of the instructional goals for a level V text. You can use the characteristics in the Literacy Continuum to match with this analysis for text and instructional goals.

Best wishes!
Debbie
