  1. Hi Mary Ann! We met at sljsummit. I was the one who talked forever with you and your brother near David Weisner's poster! Anyway, this is a great list of resources since I'm about to create a lesson on informational text for 6th grade science students and this is the subject area! Anyway, wondering if you've already thought about how one would use these to teach info text structure, analyzing text and possibly point of view. Thanks in advance. I also LOVE the Classroom Bookshelf!
