    Hi, everyone!

    So I had a question for the RICA case study; if you had a student who only likes to read expository texts (such as science textbooks) and does not enjoy/connect with fictional texts/characters, how would you handle this? I'm thinking give him fictional texts that relate to his favorite subject, but if anyone has any more ideas that would be great!

    Thanks and happy teaching!

    Scientific biography might be a good choice as well. There's also introducing the student to expository prose that's very well written - a school librarian or city/county librarian could be helpful here - and helping the student identify literary techniques, approaches, and elements in nonfiction. (For instance, the story of a scientific discovery can be told like a mystery or a hero's journey.)

    Scientific biographies are a great idea! I also thought about having him read fictional stories where the main characters were
    scientists and having him write a story from the perspective of a scientist, but I do like your idea! Thanks!!
