When it comes to this topic people have strong favorites. Many people believe that understanding human thoughts through the written word is the key towards human progress. These are your nonfiction enthusiasts. I would classify these people as the "Reading is a Science" people. There are also many people that believe the written word should be appreciated for its beauty and ability to move us. This is what fiction readers are. These are your "Reading is an Art" people. Many wonderous authors can often blur the lines between these two genres. In some cases, I catch myself doing research about the stories I read. There is also a cross over genres called realistic fiction. Where the setting or overall story relates to historical event of some kind, but is not a verifiable story. These worksheets will help students differentiate between the two types of works.
