Kapuscinski non-fiction

https://www.kobo.com/us/es/ebook/kapuscinski-non-fiction...
Tres años después de la muerte de Kapuscinski -el hombre que elevó el reportaje a la categoría de literatura, que diseccionó como nadie los mecanismos del poder y que se convirtió en la voz de los excluidos, Artur Domoslawski aborda la tarea de desentrañar las claves que rodearon la vida y la obra del celebre reportero polaco: sus relaciones con el régimen comunista, los avatares de su vida privada y, sobre todo, hasta que punto son fiables los datos que Kapuscinski presenta como ciertos en sus obras. Sin embargo, Domoslawski entiende que enterrar al mito no es la función de un biógrafo. Como hombre que le conoció bien, como periodista que había vivido experiencias muy similares en la Polonia comunista y que siempre admiró al maestro, sabe cuál es su cometido: revelar al hombre con todos sus claroscuros, una tarea nada sencilla en la que los límites entre realidad y ficción se difuminan, y transmitirnos el mismo mensaje que Kapuscinski se esforzó por hacernos llegar durante toda su vida: que sin entender el contexto de una existencia, nadie tiene derecho a juzgarla. En las librerías abundan los pequeños libros acerca de grandes personajes. También hay un buen número de grandes libros acerca de personajes insignificantes. Quizá lo que mas haya sean libros insignificantes sobre personajes no menos insignificantes. Para contar los grandes libros sobre grandes personajes nos bastan los dedos de una mano, y este libro es uno de ellos. Zygmunt Bauman

Successful Nonfiction

The advice contained in this book comes from those who have succeeded in their writing careers. The sensible counsel in this well-written anthology has immediate and long-term benefits for the serious writer." -Ray Newton, National Coordinator, Reader's Digest Writing Workshops The Chapter One starts with a lucid commentary on writing. Writing is a creative act. Building a nonfiction book requires planning, structure and lots of labor. Your intellectual property is a piece of art; it will not design itself or be created overnight. Writing a book is a journey, a trip to be enjoyed on the way to the reward at the destination. Learning as you research your subject is stimulating. The thought process of distilling the pertinent information for your readers is invigorating. Crafting just the right words to convey your message is energizing and provides the power to maintain your writing momentum. The published book is your goal but the process is fun. You are fortunate to be a writer. Chapter Two focuses on the rationale of writing. There are many justifications for investing your time and money in writing a nonfiction book. Some are fame, fortune, to help other people and/or because you have a personal mission. Chapter Three stresses need of a book. A nonfiction book is a product, an information product that is inexpensive to manufacture and easy to distribute. A book speaks with more authority than other media. Chapter Four explains a reader what to write. In First, decide whether to entertain or inform. In other words, decide between fiction and nonfiction. As you will discover, nonfiction is easier to sell. Chapter Five stresses on Research. Most of a nonfiction writer's time is spent in study. You must locate and read through all the relevant materials available in other books, magazines, newsletters, newspapers, interviews, museums, historical societies, public libraries, university libraries and special (law, medical) libraries.

Nonfiction Notebooks

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/nonfiction-notebooks...
In my classroom, I have found that through the support of notebook work, students can grow their writing and strengthen their ideas. With strong ideas, they can write better first drafts. The work we do in notebooks before rushing into a draft gives us time to envision our work, to find mentor texts we love, and to study those texts. In doing so, we actually are doing a lot of the "revision" on our "vision" before we write the draft. - Nonfiction NotebooksAimee Buckner has introduced writer's notebooks to hundreds of classrooms through her popular book Notebook Know-How, thereby helping students everywhere learn to improve their overall writing by focusing on essential prewriting strategies. Now, using the same format, Aimee explains how writer's notebooks can help students improve their nonfiction writing-reports, articles, memoirs, essays, and so forth-which has taken on even greater importance because of the emphasis the Common Core State Standards place on informative/explanatory writing. As Aimee explains, the prewriting work a student does is particularly important when writing informational pieces. Writer's notebooks help students capture their thoughts, develop ideas, explore mentor texts, refine a research strategy, and play with multiple outcomes-all of which lead to stronger concepts and better first drafts. Greater emphasis on the front end of the writing process also saves time and energy at the revision and editing stages. From exploring topics to gathering information to assessment, Nonfiction Notebooks takes teachers step-by-step through the process of how best to use notebooks for informational writing. Helpful reproducible forms are included both in the book and as downloads online.
